Anna Moellenbeck is a RISE AmeriCorps member with EMBARC in Des Moines. Anna is currently a junior at Miami University studying Political Science, International Studies, and Spanish. She is from Granger, Iowa and attended Dowling Catholic High School.
Anna wanted an opportunity to help her fellow Iowans who had lost their jobs during the pandemic in any way she could. Working for EMBARC allows her to help refugee families from Burma file for unemployment, apply for food stamps, and simply help them navigate these confusing and stressful times.
In her free time, she loves canvassing for political candidates and playing on her college dodgeball team.
