At Fusion, Anya works as our Science Department Head and as one of our Science Teachers. She went to Rutgers University New Brunswick for her undergrad work and continued her education at the graduate level at Kean University with a major in Special Education. Anya is duel certified and has co-taught Science classes in the public school system for over 7 years.
She has also worked as an activist for LGBTQ+ equality, which is one of her life passions. Anya is an animal lover. She believes in the importance of rescuing animals in need. She is a nature lover but admits that she is a homebody at heart. For her, nothing beats a rainy night with her family and a good Melissa McCarthy movie. If she is not relaxing at home with good company, she can be found fiddling on her acoustic guitar, getting lost in a void of ‘good tunes”. When asked to describe an embarrassing moment, Anya could not pick one as she admits that she usually embarrasses herself at least once a day.
