Meet our new Clinical Provider Liaison, Anastasia Anderson. She joined healthy Start in April 2022, months after a traumatic loss of her daughter, Aria at 5 months’ gestation.
Anastasia’s passion sprung from her early years in Ghana, where she grew up to witness high rate of infant mortality due to lack of maternal education.
Anastasia has dedicated her life to public health, nursing and in health inequalities.
After her bachelors of science degrees in Community Health and in Nursing from Seton Hall University, Anastasia is currently completing her Master’s degree in Public Health.
Anastasia is joining Healthy Start with over five years’ clinical experience in ICU, Maternity, NICU and the ER from Princeton Hospital in New Jersey. After her move to Florida, Anastasia translated her experiences with a position at the Martin County Health Department as the Health Equity and Florida Healthy Babies coordinator. At the Health Department, Anastasia partnered with Healthy Start, House of Hope, Cleveland Clinic, WIC and Florida Community Health to support and educate women about the importance of early entry into prenatal care and breastfeeding with a focus in minority women.
Anastasia is married to Father Christian Anderson at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Stuart and they have a son named Kwame. When not working, Anastasia enjoys spending time with her family, friends and traveling.
