The daughter of immigrants from India, Anita was born in Kansas City, Missouri and moved to Arizona when she was 7. She graduated summa cum laude with degrees in both computer information systems and finance from Arizona State University. She later earned her master’s in journalism from the University of Southern California in 2002.
Anita first worked for MicroAge as a business analyst and then went on to work at the The Arizona Republic as Deputy Director of ASU’s Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism.
