Ana Rodrigues is the latest addition to our team, having joined Impacter in March 2023 as the customer success manager.
She is originally from Portugal, currently living in Leiden. Between Portugal, Italy and The Netherlands, she studied biomedical engineering and has spent some years doing academic research with stem cells and tissue regeneration. In 2016, Ana moved from academic research to research in industry and a couple of years later, she changed paths to scientific marketing.
Ana likes to read and talk about the perks of a multi-cultural family. At Impacter, she is the first point of contact for the customers and thrives in hearing their suggestions and feedback. My main goal is to elevate the Impacter brand and make sure that every grant writer/funding officer knows about the existence of the tool and uses it to its best. When she is not working, she likes to read, play with the kids, spend time with her friends and learn more about child development and conscious parenting. The best part about this job? The variety of tasks (from blog writing to product demo sessions in my mother tongue) and being in close contact with a diverse set of customers, using different strategies for different requests. It never gets boring! Additionally, the fun and friendly atmosphere at the office and the nice conversations at lunch time motivates her to learn and work with a positive attitude. Ana believes that the biggest impact she has in her community is by being present, connected and having time for her friends and family.
