Anna Darelli-Anderson

About Me

Ciao Amici! My name is Anna and besides everything already listed in my tag line, I am also a military veteran, mother (to a 5-year-old!), and wife (of eight years). During my time in the military, I was fully trained as an Intelligence Specialist and Cryptologic Language Analyst and spent most of my time stationed at Fort George G. Meade in Maryland. Since separating from the Air Force my family has settled in Utah (for good… though I’m still trying to convince my husband to let us retire to Italy!).

I received my Bachelor of Arts in History in 2018 and completed my Master of Education program in 2021. In addition to these credentials, I hold degrees in General Studies, Arabic Language and Literature, and Intelligence Studies and Technology.

I currently serve as the Associate Director of Education for the University of Utah’s Division of General Surgery, Programs Manager for the University’s Center for Global Surgery, and the Vice Chair of the Society of One-Place Studies. Outside of this work I like to write, explore history, work on research and genealogy, and run several one-place studies.

Please feel free to email me anytime at, or find me on Twitter. Thank you so much for reading.
