Ever take a job when there was no job site? Anne Krause did. Originally from Aurora, Illinois, Anne has been in San Antonio, Texas, for 17 years. She is the President & Executive Director of the Hemisfair Conservancy, an agency she co-founded in 2014.
Art is a critical part of Hemisfair’s growing landscape, from interactive pieces made for crawling and climbing to murals created by local and international artists alike. Yanaguana Garden, the first development of three planned public parks, was designed to be an inclusive space and follows the American Disabilities Act standards for public playgrounds. Adaptive play equipment allows wheelchair users and little ones to join in on the playground fun.
Anne, who is passionate about art, education, and community, received a BS from the United States Air Force Academy, and MA from the University of Texas at Austin, and completed a non-profit executive program at Harvard Business School.
