Get to know Community Engagement Specialist AmeriCorps Vista Anna Schmiel!

Today we have the pleasure of welcoming Anna Schmiel to #TeamNEON! Anna is excited to work at NEON this year. Last year, Anna was an AmeriCorps member at College Possible, and is excited to learn more about the programmatic side of nonprofits.

Anna graduated from Carleton College in 2017 with a degree in Political Science/International Relations. During her time at Carleton, she conducted field research on post-dictatorship economic development in Southeast Asia and the economic/social conflicts facing an ecovillage in rural Missouri.

These experiences made her realize the difference investing in local business can have on a community. As a Minnesotan, she is passionate about improving her home state and loves frequenting all the wonderful local businesses the Twin Cities has to offer. In her free time, she enjoys baking, writing, and walking around Minnesota's wonderful lakes.

Welcome Anna to #TeamNEON!
