Project Manager

Background

Anamaria graduated from Oxford Brookes University with a BSc in Anthropology and holds a certification in PRINCE2. At JBR, she is primarily responsible for project management, operational development and GDPR Compliance. She previously worked as a Business Analyst, but her real strength are PowerPoint presentations.

On a personal note:

Anamaria is fascinated by the variety of human culture, and loves travelling with her husband. She is passionate about animal rights and most of her spare time is dedicated to spoiling her three cats. An avid museum-goer, tea enthusiast and hoping to retire early in the countryside, Anamaria is the perfect future grandmother.
