Anne Bannister

Digital Producer

Anne, a filmmaker, photographer, and narrative storyteller joined the Raise Your Hand Texas marketing team in June of 2014. She graduated from Southwestern University, where she made her mark creating video productions for the Admissions Office. In 2012, she spent a life-changing six months in rural Thailand as an intern for a nonprofit that works with communities and local schools towards sustainable community development.

As a Digital Producer for Raise Your Hand Texas, Anne uses her talents to craft, shoot, and edit the stories that give voice to educators, and bridge the gap between the Capitol and campus communities.

Born to a family of educators, Anne knew by age six she was destined to have an education-related career. By nature Anne is an artist and an adventurer. She loves to sing, paint, throw pottery, cook, daydream, and travel. Anne is passionate for the outdoors; she has found all of the best hiking spots in and around Austin (and the best food trucks to eat at afterward, too!)
