The Felician sports information office started an online initiative featuring athletics alumni/ae in September 2015. In "Where Are They Now?" we periodically attempt to catch up with former Golden Falcons who have gone on to interesting and successful career paths.

In the 10th installment, we visit with Anna Bartsch '04. An NAIA women's soccer All-American in 2001, Bartsch now lives in Hollywood and has been pursing a career in acting.

Any other life events you would like to tell us about?

I was a third-team NAIA All-American at Felician in women's soccer in 2001

I have an IMDB page at www.imdb.com/name/nm1742698/?ref_=nv_sr_1

My most proud recent accomplishment is joining the Screen Actors Guild performers' union.


How have you applied your experience participating in college athletics to your current employment?

In acting, it is important to have self-confidence and discipline. My experience in college athletics definitely helped develop those traits.


How has your Felician academic coursework and other extracurricular activities impacted your life, especially professionally?

I am very happy to have my Felician education. Knowing that I have a Felician degree to fall back on makes it easier to continue to pursue acting.


What advice, about any aspect of college life, would you give to a current Felician student-athlete?

Figure out what it is that you love doing. If it's athletics, stick with it for as long as you can and give it all that you have. But if it's something else, then pursue that. You have got to love what you do!
