Name: Anna Kiappes
Title: Social Media Manager

How long have you been at BCM? Almost 2 years
What’s your favorite thing about working at BCM? Two things: 1) Helping patients through social media when we post about what they’re experiencing or when we help connect them to resources they may need, and 2) the people I work with – it’s awesome to say that I can come to work every day and work with my friends.
Where were you born? Houston!
What is your favorite kind of food? I really enjoy either Mexican or Italian.
What is your favorite restaurant in Houston, and at that restaurant your favorite dish? Original Ninfa’s, the classic mixed fajitas, and Ciro’s Italian Grill, penne pasta with tomato cream sauce and grilled chicken.
What’s on your music playlist? I’m really enjoying Lizzo right now. I like anything by the Killers, Kacey Musgrave is great, and Greek music.
What is your dream vacation? Back to Greece, or the trip I’m taking this summer to Spain with some of my friends.
What is your favorite TV show? Lately it’s been season three of “Stranger Things.”
Complete this sentence: Most people wouldn’t know that I … I don’t know! I’m pretty much an open book.
What are some of your personal hobbies? Greek dancing, cooking (even though I end up injuring myself!), curling up on the couch and reading a good book

Any kids? Pets? My parents have a cat named Cuddles that I take care of.
Favorite food on campus? Love the breakfast tacos at Morrison Café. Breakfast tacos are life.
