Meet Anna

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Today I'm thrilled to introduce you to Anna Kolander, our intern for the Spring 2012 semester! She hails from Wisconsin (nobody tell her I'm a Bears fan) where she is currently pursuing a double major in Marketing and Business Management. In addition, she brings some bridal industry experience to the table -- a perfect combination. Here is a short Q+A with Anna so you can get to know her a little better:

My Starbucks order is: When I’m counting calories, a Skinny Caramel Latte. When I could care LESS about calories (95% of the time) it's a Vanilla Bean Caramel Espresso Affogato Style. SO bad for you but SO delicious.

My favorite thing about weddings: The dress! I love to see a bride’s personality shine through her dress.

I am known for: Singing being my form of communication (it’s much more fun to sing what you want to say to people than just saying it), being a little bit theatrical when I tell stories (I use quite a lot of hand gestures) and always going to class slightly over-dressed (when you go to school amongst a sea of grey sweat-suit clad, bed-headed college kids, wearing a dress and a pair of heels tends to stick out, but I’ve never seen sticking out as being a bad thing).

People are always surprised to learn that: I go to college on a piano scholarship.

My dream vacation spot is: The French Riviera. I have an obsession with the Roaring Twenties, and the French Riviera always reminds me of those glamorous, stylish, and slightly scandalous days.

My celebrity crush is: Aaron Rodgers (What? I’m a Wisconsin girl!)

When I was a kid I: Looked like a boy. I had a bowl cut and wore my older brother’s hand-me-downs.

My favorite dish to cook is: I make a mean grilled cheese. Other than that, I am hopeless in the kitchen.
