60 seconds with … Anne Marshall

Ever wanted to know what it’s like to work in international aid? In this special series, we introduce you to our many dedicated staff members working behind the scenes and on the ground, in Australia and overseas.
We hope you enjoy meeting #TeamChildFund!

 

My name is Anne Marshall.

I’m a Senior Supporter Relations Officer at ChildFund Australia.

My role involves being a contact point for our donors and ensuring their support for the children we work with runs smoothly.

I’ve been at ChildFund since 2004. Some may say it’s too long but there is always something to do and keep me busy. Helping supporters to help children gives me purpose.

Anne (pictured with children we work with in Guatemala) has been with ChildFund Australia since 2004.

My most inspiring moments at ChildFund were visiting communities in Ecuador, Guatemala and Brazil. Seeing the programs, and meeting the children and families was a life-changing experience.

The things I love most about my job are coming to work every day with wonderful people and knowing that we are helping children. It’s very rewarding.

When I was a child I wanted to be a nurse or a flight attendant.

The country I’d most like to visit is Switzerland for the scenery or Cambodia for the cultural experience.

The top 3 things I’d take with me in an emergency would be my husband, a first aid kit and a bottle of red wine.

My favourite dishes/cuisines or places to eat are Greek or Vietnamese – I love a hot bowl of pho at any time of the day!

I’m really good at finding things to laugh at in almost any kind of situation. It can get me into trouble sometimes.

I can’t live without my friends and family.

I’m looking forward to spending this weekend with my new puppy!
