Founder & CEO, Sparkd I The Brain & Fitness Hub
(In her 40's)
Her story (as shared by her nominator)
Anna's journey with Sparkd began when she lost her grandfather to Alzheimer’s. From there, her desire to help people improve and maintain their brain health was born. Her search brought her in contact with numerous areas of study, people and cutting-edge technology processes in neuroscience, which she brought together, under one roof at Sparkd. She believes that anyone at any age and stage can be empowered cognitively and transformed physically. Her tenacity and passion in seeing her vision come true is inspirational.
In her own words:
Having 3 kids.
Biggest challenge thus far
Bringing a new business concept to Asia.
what judges say
It’s not “sexy” to focus on things like mental health and Alzheimers, the fact that she’s putting attention on a very serious problem is honorable – and doing it with 3 kids! Wow!
