Anna Lawler is originally from the northern suburbs of Chicago, but has called many places home over the past few years, including Cleveland, Denver and Boston. She graduated from John Carroll University with a Bachelor of Arts in Theology and Religious Studies and has a Masters in Theology and Ministry from Boston College's School of Theology and Ministry. Lawler did post-grad volunteer service in Denver with the Colorado Vincentian Volunteers (CVV), where she lived in an intentional community with nine people and worked at a refugee resettlement agency. After CVV,Lawler worked as a resident minister at John Carroll University and fell in love with ministry work.

Lawler's passion for ministry is rooted in a deep love for faith exploration and helping others work through questions about faith and the world. When she is not trying to unpack life's big questions, Lawler likes to read, cook, sing and get outside, particularly going hiking and camping.
