Over her three decades in public relations, communications and administrative management, Anna Rieth has dedicated herself to serving community-oriented organizations. The common thread through Anna’s work has been to help enhance a person’s quality of life; simultaneously equipping people with information and opportunities to help them build relationships within their communities and the organizations that serve them, and garnering support for the organizations to ensure their longevity. Anna cares about people, and is committed to ensuring that both the needs of people and organizations are met so both can thrive. She is grateful for the opportunity to work at PPUMC since 2012, a community within itself in her own neighborhood, that aligns with her values of faith and social justice.
Originally from Michigan, Anna holds a Master of Fine, Performing and Communications Arts from Wayne State University in Detroit MI, and a Bachelor of Business Administration from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI. Her background includes working for a city magazine and a neighborhood recreation/community center in Michigan, and at Phyllis Wheatley Community Center in Minneapolis. Since 1999, Anna has lived with her husband in Prospect Park in Minneapolis, has three sons aged 22, 20 and 16, and two cats.
