Anna Davis | PA/Administrator/Blogger and Social Media/Troubleshooter
Our social media and accounts whizz is Anna Davis. Her path to Atlas did not take the most obvious route. Anna began her career as a children’s nurse before leaving hospital-based nursing entirely to take a degree in Public Health and become a health visitor. Her career in the NHS ended in 2009 when she left to have the third of what turned out to be four children. When she returned to work, Anna set off in a new direction and joined a local primary school where she launched and ran its Facebook and Twitter pages as well as the school’s website.
However, a major bump in the road saw Anna return to the hospital setting– this time as a patient. Once her treatment was finished, she returned to work once again, this time here at Atlas. Anna oversees our social media platforms and is the author of our blog series – Novels in Translation. Alongside these roles, she is PA to Clare Suttie and provides admin support to the whole team. Follow Atlas on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to find out more about what we do – and what makes everyone in the office giggle. Yes, there may well be a kitten video involved. Anna wrote a lovely blog about Atlas Translations and the local community here: https://www.atlas-translations.co.uk/our-community/
What Anna lacks in baking abilities, she makes up for in eating abilities. Never one to let the last slice of a Christa-cake go to waste, Anna is on hand. Keen to stay fit and healthy, she regularly adopts a diet worthy of Gwyneth or Madonna on a Monday morning only to ditch it by Wednesday for cappuccinos. By Friday, it’s Prosecco of course. She has recently starting making cheesecake, and – crucially – bringing it in to the office. Smart move.
Anna also helps out with project management work, often sorting out translations of birth certificates and arranging notarisation of translations of certificates.
Anna keeps the office running, by ensuring there is fresh coffee and tea aplenty, and remembering everyone’s birthdays. She also is FANTASTIC with the accounts so makes sure we all get paid.
During the current pandemic Anna is working from home with her four children, who are as helpful as you can probably imagine.
Thanks to Anna, we have a permanent Bra Bin which is regularly filled up. This raises money for a great charity, Against Breast Cancer. You can read more about the charity here: https://www.againstbreastcancer.org.uk/recycling/bra-recycling/
