A recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest after 12 years in New York, Anjana joins Philanthropy Northwest as our Vice President of Strategy and Operations. She is passionate about social innovations and has focused much of her career on creating and funding programs with measurable societal impact.
She previously worked at the Center for Health Care Strategies, where she led a statewide collaborative of Medicaid policymakers, health practitioners and social service agencies to uncover implementation challenges and opportunities for Medicaid Health Homes. Her interest in healthcare stems from her work with the Robin Hood Foundation, New York City’s largest anti-poverty nonprofit, overseeing a $10 million portfolio that increased access to healthcare for low-income New Yorkers.
Anjana holds an MBA from Yale University’s School of Management in entrepreneurial management and healthcare leadership and has a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. On weekends, she enjoys exploring Seattle’s many playgrounds with her children.
