SRSLY Stockbridge is pleased to welcome Anna Webber to its team as the new program coordinator
In this role, Webber leads the coalition’s efforts and programming, and supports the volunteers. She also oversees the daily operations and community impact.
Webber earned her master’s degree in social work from Eastern Michigan University and holds a bachelor’s degree in theatre performance from Western Michigan University. A Michigan native, Webber explains how these dual degrees prepared her for her role at SRSLY.
“Theatre created a place where I felt safe to be myself,” said Webber. “I developed supportive relationships and life skills that I carry with me today.”
Webber’s transformative experience of theatre sparked a passion for helping youth and pursuing her social work degree.
"With SRSLY, I can combine the skills I learned from theatre, as well as the therapeutic skills I learned from pursuing my social work degree to create spaces for youth to express themselves. My goal is to help them gain confidence and leadership skills, while learning positive ways of coping with stress."
“We’re thrilled to have Anna as part of the SRSLY team,” said Emily Stewart, SRSLY Stockbridge Coalition Director. “Anna’s educational background provides her with a unique perspective on the best ways to connect with youth.”
Webber lives in Ypsilanti with her partner and their dog, Juno. She loves being outdoors as much as possible in summer and fall, especially kayaking or hiking. She also enjoys spending time with family and friends, and binge watching whatever her latest TV series obsession may be.
