Anna Sinclair earned her Bachelors of Science in Public Relations at Northern Arizona University and her Masters of Organizational Leadership at Biola University. Sinclair spent several years working for the Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad, Calif. and then transitioned to Mariners Church in Irvine, Calif. Volunteerism was a major role within her positions at both institutions. Her master’s thesis included study on the generational and professional differences of individuals which in turn affect where and how those individuals volunteer their time. Based on her research, Sinclair created a model for strategic and targeted volunteer outreach that institutions such as museums could utilize for their docent programs. After her time at Mariners Church, Sinclair accepted a position at Ambassador Advertising Agency, where she served as an account executive for nearly seven years. Sinclair learned the broadcasting industry in full while working with such clients as Joni Eareckson Tada, Elizabeth George, Gary Chapman and other Christian ministries that utilize radio broadcasting. She transitioned from working at Ambassador full-time to becoming an adjunct at Biola teaching in the Media, Journalism and Public Relations department.
