Women with Moxy: Anna Lindquist




Tell us a little more about yourself...who are you to the world?

Like anyone, I'm a lot of things! I'm a mom to two kids. I'm a wife. I'm a data professional. It's not my job anymore, but I still love rock magnetism, soil science, and learning about advances in sustainable agriculture. 


Was there a moment when you first realized you had Moxy?

I don't feel like there was a single moment of realization for this. I see a lot of growth in myself throughout my adult life, in part, because I've had a lot of awesome people who trusted me enough to give me opportunities that pushed my limits and helped me grow.


Tell us about a time when your Moxy has impacted your life...

I got a Ph.D. I'm still very proud of that. I also think changing careers took some Moxy (and some hard work)!


Share something unsuspecting about you, what would people be surprised to know?

Hah! I don't know if I'm mysterious enough to be surprising. How about: we tapped our walnut trees this year to make syrup. It was amazing on pancakes and in cocktails.


How do you recharge your Moxy?

Three things come to mind: knitting because it's creative and beautiful and I get something useful at the end; being outside camping, canoeing, hiking, or just walking in the woods; and spending time with my friends and family.


What did you want to be when you were little?

A pediatrician. In a big way. I shadowed my pediatrician for a school project. I was really into dissections when we got there in school. And I had this human bodies game where you had to name the organ, the function, and place it appropriately in a diagram of a human body to get points and advance. I loved this game. 🤓
