Anna Burnham

Specialty Proctor for CARE
Hello, I’m Anna! I am currently a Master of Divinity student at Harvard Divinity School, where I’m studying women’s roles in religion, society, and politics through a social justice and community organizing lens. I grew up surrounded by lots of farms and cornfields in central Pennsylvania before graduating from Villanova University (outside Philly) in 2014. In the years after college, I worked as an organizer for various political campaigns and non-profit organizations in Portland, OR, Asheville, NC, and Washington, DC before finally settling here in Cambridge for graduate school. I have [too] many interests and enjoy talking with pretty much anyone about pretty much anything, but my true passions include: cooking, farmers’ markets, public theology, British period pieces, bike rides, really great cups of coffee, books, plants, and Villanova basketball.

Greetings Class of 2023! Welcome to Harvard! I am a Massachusetts native from “20 minutes outside of Boston.” In 2011, I graduated from Bates College (Lewiston, ME) where I studied economics and met my wonderful partner, Jocelyn. Since college, I earned my master’s degree in higher education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and served as the Associate Director of Diversity and Community at Amherst College. Currently, I work in the Admissions and Financial Aid Office. My partner, Jocelyn, is pursuing her PhD in English literature at Boston College. We enjoy cooking, reading, and traveling. My partner and I are both from New England and love exploring the region’s hidden gems. We can’t wait to meet you!

Specialty Proctor for Race Relations

Greetings class of 2023! Welcome to the Harvard family. Born and raised in Hawaii, I confess I am a true Island girl at heart. Though the beach, shaved-ice, and some good reggae music fill my soul, I´m excited to discover what life in the Boston winters can offer! I graduated from the University of Southern California in 2016 where my love for Capoeira (Afro-Brazilian Martial Art) and poetry re-awakened while studying visual and performing arts and social sciences psychology. This past year I lived in Salvador Bahia, Brasil completing a Fulbright Creative and Performing Arts Research project around the origins of Capoeira (this is my 11th year training!) and volunteering with local youth teaching English, Capoeira, and poetry. As a student at the Divinity School I´m passionate about exploring questions of identity and human rights from an intersectional perspective. Very excited to meet you all this fall!

Specialty Proctor for Race Relations
Welcome to Harvard! I am excited to spend the year with you. I'm from San Jose, California and first arrived in Boston as a student at Boston College, where I studied math and met my husband, Sang. I left Boston for a while to earn my master’s degree from Northwestern University and to work at Duke University while Sang studied for his master’s there. Currently, I work at SEAS as an Institutional Research Analyst which allows me to combine my math background and higher ed experiences and Sang works as an Admissions Officer at Boston University School of Theology. Aside from our professional careers, we love to make homemade pasta and Korean food, plan outings near and far, and annoy our old dog, Toby.

Specialty Proctor for Public Service
I first came to Cambridge in 2017 to get a master’s degree in public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. Following my first year at HKS, I entered the joint-degree program with Harvard Law School and I currently split my time between the two schools. Prior to graduate school, I spent a few years in finance in New York City. I’m originally from Durham, North Carolina and graduated from the University of North Carolina in 2014. I’m interested in state government, having recently spent a summer with the Governor of North Carolina’s public policy team. I love college basketball (Go Heels!), running, reading and spending time with friends. I’m excited to welcome you to Harvard and looking forward to meeting you all.

Specialty Proctor for BGLTQ/Gender & Sexuality

Welcome to Harvard! Though born and bred in New York, I haven’t left Cambridge since arriving as a first-year student in 2010. As an undergraduate, I studied comparative literature and history, wrote for the arts section of The Crimson, produced an opera, and hung out with my political friends at the Institute of Politics. I completed my PhD in English at Harvard last spring and have just begun an appointment in the Society of Fellows at Dartmouth College. My teaching and research focus broadly on Black literature in the Americas and the comparative history of Atlantic slavery, among other topics. I live in Canaday E with my partner Rob and our dog Trooper, who is always available for pet therapy sessions and walks—as long as you don’t mind picking up poop in the Yard. I’m also a great resource if you’re feeling overwhelmed by the coffee options in Harvard Square.
