Strategic Account Manager
After a fast and furious start in advertising and PR, Anna tackled a new challenge with a large agency where she became a complete stud at client management and sales sequencing. After becoming the top performing account manager, Amy and Sara went after her to join the AK Ops team.
Anna now takes over onboarded clients who are ready for the hard sprint in campaign testing and dialing up. Like a secret weapon, she joins other managers on difficult accounts for additional creativity and execution bandwidth. Pairing Anna’s incredible work ethic and creativity makes her a massive contributor to our clients and an invaluable Sharp Chick at AK Ops. There’s also no denying that the amount of laughter in the office has exponentially grown since hiring Anna!
Anna, a born and raised St. Louisian, is a former competitive figure skater and loyal IU graduate—go Hoosiers! She loves her big Greek family and enjoys being with her niece and nephew!
“Where do I even start about the impact Anna has had on our business? Her work is always on point, making her a perfect manager, but her spunk, humor, and goodness makes her the perfect teammate. I love joining her client calls—her professional yet charismatic delivery comes completely natural. Interviewing her felt too good to be true and hiring her was a total no-brainer. It’s only a matter of time before Anna becomes a leader on our team, and I cannot wait to watch her soar.”
These are not my faves
Anna’s Clients Rock!
StreamLoan started to build out its first GTM team, by hiring a sales leader, and complimenting him with sales & marketing growth hacker AK is a strong professional sales & marketing firm, who own both projects and their outcomes. They have become a part of our operating team, interwoven with our sales team. Sara and Anna are open minded to learn, iterate, and apply new learnings to achieve higher quality outcomes. They bring an analytical view into the sales & marketing process, and are very detailed in the data management / CRM workflow. I’d recommend working with the team.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Anna as my primary point of contact for a couple of months and have found her be extremely responsive and timely in her communication as well as to addressing matters that need immediate attention. She’s very intelligent and creative in thinking “outside the box” when faced with challenges, which has help our organization immensely. I find it a pleasure to work with Anna on a number of fronts, whether is be CRM organization, marketing messages or targeting the right prospects for our services.
Director of Sales, SnoutID
We’re creating a new software category, and generating revenue in a new space requires a lot of creativity, education, and engaging efforts with an outbound go-to-market strategy. Anna, Sara, and the entire AK Ops team tackled our outbound go-to-market strategy with incredible grit, hustle, and creativity. I’ve been incredibly impressed with the level of partnership, collaboration, and responsiveness we receive from AK Ops. Anna’s ability to adapt and pivot our campaigns and targets based on the metrics we’re generating is incredible. She’s continuously improving campaign messaging or making minor strategy pivots until we hit our targeted conversion rates. Quick, visible improvements are historically hard for an outsourced partner to prove, much less achieve but AK Ops has been able to prove both. I feel the reason for this is AK Ops doesn’t act like a 3rd party partner, they have become a direct extension of our team.

AK Ops has been amazing! They quickly enhanced our HubSpot and created a top of funnel lead machine. Amy and Shelby put together marketing and sales sequences that immediately generated hundreds of MQLs and several meetings. I’m very impressed with the team and am not hesitating to continue working with AK Ops.

The AK team has brought the knowledge where we have gaps. They quickly came into our CRM and company to make immediate improvements to our sales operations. We are about 4 weeks into our partnership with Amy and Krista and already noticing a major impact to our top of the funnel! Specifically, Krista has been amazing. She is attentive to my questions and concerns. I am started to end all of my communications to Krista with, “I so appreciate you”, because I truly, truly do. She has added a great deal of value to our sales team and how we operate. This allows me the time to focus on other revenue generating activities.
VP of Sales, Instant Teams

Our new meetings have increased by 62.5% and the number of new proposals is up by 81.25% (the total $ in new proposals is up 86.75%)!! This is proof of the value of the diligent work, creative thinking and strategic guidance from Mal and the team. In 2 words…Game Changing!
“What more can I say about Amy? The results speak for themselves. In a matter of a few weeks she’d completely overhauled our entire approach to demand generation and our sales process, transforming a stale database into an asset that has led to a 3x increase in pipeline chock full of REAL customer opportunities. The future is bright with Amy on our team.”
