About Anna Squires
Anna Squires is the Strategic Communications Professional for University Communications and the Office of the Chancellor.

She deeply appreciates former president Franklin D. Roosevelt’s edict for public speakers: “Be sincere; be brief; be seated.”
Anna feels strongly about clear, powerful verbal and visual communication, and even more strongly that the AP Stylebook should make Oxford commas mandatory. She has spent most of her professional life in the marketing, communications, and digital media spaces, and moonlights as a freelance graphic designer.
Anna graduated magna cum laude from Colorado College with a B.A. in political science and a minor in multimedia communications. She enjoys yoga and roller skating, and can be won over with highly detailed, color-coded communications strategies.
