Coach Anna eats, sleeps and breathes volleyball! She has spent the past 15 years (Aug 2005- Nov 2019) at the Division I level at Bucknell University, which includes the past 7 seasons (2013-2019) as the head coach. During her tenure, she coached several All Patriot League selections and several college camps as well as Gold Medal Squared Camps. 

Originally from Brazil, her life was surrounded by volleyball, a lifelong clinician and student of the sport, the skills she teaches on a daily basis have been passed down from her dad (who is a 8x Olympian, 4x as an OH/RS and 4x as a Performance Coach) and several other coaches with whom she played under. Moreno, her dad, coached for several years at the professional Brazilian league, and today works for the Olympic Committee in Brazil with Player Performance. Her twin brother - Carlos Moreno - was the AVCA player of the year in 2004, he set for BYU and today is the associate head at ASU.

Anna played for 4 years at the D1 level at ORU, won 4 Conference Titles, 2x Setter of the Year Awards and 2x All- Conference accolades.
