Board of Directors
Anna has led Reveal NYC’s mission since 2007, forging partnerships with safe houses like Restore and Safe Horizons, pioneering the launch of key programs such as Reveal NYC’s annual Valentine’s Day makeover event and monthly women’s workshops, and aggressively recruiting volunteers to support throughout the year. She is compelled by the power of a modern-day Cinderella story, where positive uplifting experiences can reinforce love and healing in a woman’s brokenness and process of regaining her life.
As the chair of Reveal NYC’s Board of Directors, Anna is responsible for supporting the leadership in ensuring the organization’s brand, values, programs and financial initiatives are aligned with the core vision and strategy. Outside of Reveal NYC, Anna holds a leadership role at a digital advertising agency.

Currently, Alex sits on the Board of Directors and leads the organization’s security team.
Alex also serves as a Deacon at Trinity Grace Church Chelsea and the System Administrator at NYC Health +
