Nominated for her recognised outstanding success in business
Anna studied for many years at university to become a podiatrist and, frustrated by the lack of footwear available for purchase that was good for people’s feet, she began her own footwear business. Anna is the proud owner and director of the very successful brand, Bared Footwear.
She said that since leaving the College in 1995, the Mercy ethos ingrained in her education was something she continued to share with all those she employed and interacted with, demonstrated by her strong passion for people and the planet. Creating the most sustainable shoes in the most sustainable way, providing the best customer service experience possible and then giving back generously to help those who are less fortunate is what drives Anna every day.
Anna is an active supporter of the local community as well as financially supporting disadvantaged communities in the Northern Territory and east Africa. She believes that privilege comes with great responsibility to give back to those less fortunate.
