Anna Wood is the founder/CEO of Brains over Blonde (brainsoverblonde.com), a feminist lifestyle platform for women who REFUSE to choose between femininity and success. Brains over Blonde provides sassy, badassy career and life advice through free content, tools, inspiration, and coaching.
Anna grew up in Silicon Valley and is obsessed with female empowerment, innovation, and leadership. She has a Stanford MBA and led sales at Google. She’s worked with major brands including Netflix, J.Crew, and Airbnb.
Anna’s passion for supporting strong women started early. In undergrad at UC Berkeley, she wrote her honors thesis on diversity in the workplace. All the while, she was also helping women look and feel beautiful as a personal stylist. While at Google, she facilitated the Unconscious Bias course and ran wellness programs. She trained to be a personal and professional coach at Stanford.
Along the way, Anna often felt pressure to choose between femininity and success, but she refused to do so. She LOVES being a woman, and believes her female identity has contributed to her success. Instead of waiting around for a major societal change, she created her own lane and founded Brains over Blonde.
Anna recently relocated to Los Angeles to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams. When she’s not inspiring the modern woman, Anna can be found traveling the world with her fiancé, lounging at the beach, or listening to her favorite podcasts.
