Anna Glenn is a co-founder of UHC and has served as Vice President since its inception in 2004. Her work as a landscape architect is supported by an education in ecology and engineering, experience in law and education, and a life-long interest in language and culture.

Anna served as a Peace Corps volunteer in The Gambia from 2000 to 2002. For Anna, UHC is her Peace Corps Third Goal project. The third goal of the Peace Corps is to bring the experience back home. Anna’s personal mission for UHC is to influence how we behave and build in the developed world, which ultimately has an impact on the environment of the developing world.

Anna is also a year-round bike commuter and was quoted in the book “How to Live Well Without Owning a Car.”
