Prior to beginning her current role, Anna spent the majority of her career building community programs as part of Starbucks’ Social Impact team. She built and led collaborations with external nonprofit organizations and internal business teams to achieve meaningful impact.

Ranko Fukuda is the CareerWork$® Regional Director. She is responsible for working with Vocational Training partners, employer partners, and community stakeholders to ensure the BankWork$® and CareerWork$ Medical® programs are maximizing their impact in markets across the country. After graduating from University of Michigan, Ranko spent 12 years with Capital One Financial, honing in on her Project and Program Management skills, as well as having the privilege of working in the CEO, President and Bank Presidents’ offices and managing the Bank charitable giving program. Her tenure at Capital One ended unexpectedly when the Great Northeast Earthquake and Tsunami affected her home country of Japan, and she moved to Japan temporarily to help aid in disaster recovery with All Hands Volunteers. Upon her return to the US, Ranko moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the non profit sector to leverage her professional skills in making a difference in underserved communities. She enjoys salsa dancing, hot yoga, organic farming, and spending time with her dog and cat.
Alissa Weddington joined CareerWork$® in 2017 as Operations Officer. She performs operations and administrative functions for the career training program, as well as providing support to the CareerWork$ President. Alissa graduated from the University of California at Santa Barbara and spent several years in print media before transitioning into the financial services industry. She led operations and development for a number of financial advisory firms prior to joining CareerWork$. Alissa currently lives in Santa Barbara and enjoys hiking and beach combing along the scenic coast.
Ruby Sloan’s journey with CareerWork$® started in 2012 when she graduated from the Seattle BankWork$ program, which allowed her to start her career in banking as a teller. With the training she received while in the program, she was able to stand out as a top performer and work her way up to a Sr. Relationship Banker position in commercial banking. Wanting to give back to the program that changed her life, she became a Career Navigator with Seattle BankWork$ expansion into Pierce county.
Ruby serves as a key support liaison to new and existing CareerWork$ training partners, providing curriculum and instructional support, as well as representing the program across the country to constituents while supporting the team in achieving its national expansion. In her spare time, Ruby enjoys taking road trips with her husband and three children, exploring natural attractions, and tasting new food from different cultures.
The BankWork$ Advisory Board consists of top leaders from the banking industry, including our founding partners. Members of the Advisory Board contribute to strategic planning, build partner relationships, and ensure the BankWork$ program meets the current needs of the industry.
