Anna Zelinske's work in the disability field began in 1999 when she worked as a direct care assistant at the Marshall Habilitation Center in Marshall, Missouri. What began as a part-time college job paved the path for a career in supporting people with disabilities to set and meet their personal goals. After graduating from Missouri Valley College with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a minor in Human Service Agency Management, Anna continued her work with the Missouri Department of Mental Health at the St. Charles Habilitation Center in her home town of St. Charles, Missouri. It was there that she developed her leadership skills and progressed through the agency and into an Administrator position.


In 2006, Anna obtained a Master's Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from Maryville University. The required internship introduced her to Paraquad, Inc, where she spent the next nearly 8 years in various roles, most recently as the Director of Independent Living. Eager to further develop as an administrator, Anna left Paraquad in 2013 to fill the role of Director of the Adult Day Center at the Jewish Community Center. It is there that Anna realized and coupled her passion for people with disabilities with her passion for people who are aging.


Anna's career path led directly to the role she currently holds as a Program Specialist at the Productive Living Board, where she provides partnership, support and guidance to the various funded agencies.
