She graduated with a degree in biology in the year 1996 and then would focus on research at the National Institutes of Health.

She would then be a part of Wall Street where she worked as a health care consultant at Passport Capital which was an investment fund. Here, she had the chance to get to know what the market was like in the health care industry.

Over the years, she started to have some frustrations over the way that health care was viewed and found that people were not interested in preventing diseases since there wasn’t money directly involved yet.

But, Anne knew better and through her rigorous research, she eventually decided to start the company 23andMe in 2006 along with Linda Avey which is a personal genomics and biotechnology company focusing on providing genetic testing. The personal kit that they created was even mentioned as the “Invention of the Year” by Time magazine in 2008.
