Anna Ackerman is more than just one of our brilliant leaders — she is the ultimate connector, who’s driven by her unwavering love for sharing other people stories. When she’s not juggling her three daughters or servicing her financial clients, you can find her “matchmaking” people from all walks of life. After moving from Chicago and settling in Newport Beach, CA, creating a community for women came from a deep desire to find ‘her people.’ Anna has been a top performer for multiple corporate sales organizations, and has a degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders. She met her life partner, Adam, in college and they’ve been each other’s greatest supporters in all of their life’s endeavors for over 20 years. One of Annas favorite quotes is “how you do anything is how you do everything”. This has served as her North Star as she developed The ROAR Society — featuring successful women and their journey, supporting women, and aligning new relationships, all of which contributes in what she considers her most fulfilling ‘job’ to date.
