Only the bravest ones are ready to hear what she has to say. Dr. for direct communication.
Being born and raised in Osijek, moving to Zagreb was not an easy decision for Ana. However, if not for that decision, Ana would now have been a lawyer instead of a psychologist. After graduating from Psychology at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in 2002 and the birth of her beautiful daughter, Ana realised that it was time to find a job. Even though she did not dream of working in a school, rather in NASA or the President’s office, she dedicated herself to her new job in school as if it was her first choice. However, that job at the Gymnasium of Sports brought Ana something unexpected. It brought her the chance to be there and support hundreds of student-athletes when they needed it the most.
Igor invited Ana to Mental Training and allowed her to continue working with athletes. Ana is committed to always bringing her A-game while working with her clients ranging from children to elite athletes. She and Igor were even the first psychologists that were a part of the team of athletes at the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics.
However, Ana does not see this achievement as a peak of her career, but as the beginning – the beginning of investment into her further professional development, the beginning of the learning process, and leaving a mark.
Being a workaholic, apart from working in Mental Training Ana tends to be involved in various projects which she is passionate about. She is the LastAna from children’s magazine Modra Lasta, sport psychologist in a tv programme Rekreativac which runs on Croatian Radiotelevision, and she also occasionally writes columns for My Little Zagreb web page.
What Ana finds important is to leave one’s own mark instead of following someone else’s – try living by that yourself.
