Ana began her career working as an Advisor to the Deputy Prime Minister of Serbia believing that to become modern, Serbia requires system reform.

She learned that to be democratic, governments need strong and active civil society to keep it accountable for making the better life of citizens a priority number one. This belief led her to initiate the founding of the Serbia on the move, a national organizing and change making non-profit. Since then, she led several national campaigns engaging thousands of citizens, resulting in introduction of innovative tools for increasing transparency & accountability, creation of opinion shifts and policy changes in areas of anticorruption, healthcare, labor rights of women, etc.

In 2016 Ana completed a Master of Public Administration at the Harvard Kennedy School where she also served as Assistant Professor and Head of the Teaching Team with professor Marshall Ganz, for Public Narrative and Community Organizing course.

Over the course of her career, she has trained thousands of people from all around and has coached more than 80 campaigns in over 20 countries worldwide.
