Welcome to the Nason Group: Anna Johnsrud

Anna Johnsrud
GSD Catalyst

Welcome to the Nason Group team, Anna Johnsrud! Anna will be taking on the role of GSD (Get Sh*t Done) Catalyst.

Anna brings order and structure to a chaotic world while creating a ton of fun along the way. With experience in strategic planning, process improvement, change management, communications, and innovation, her mind never stops figuring out how to move teams from stagnation to action.

She combines her organizational superpowers with her passion for health care disruption by keeping all of the Nason Group’s balls in the air. Her frustration with the status quo in patient experience motivates her to fight for change by bringing consumers into the mix, collaborating to solve the biggest problems, and challenging assumptions through prototyping and testing.

Anna comes to the Nason Group with over 10 years of experience in the health care world and most recently as the innovation portfolio program manager of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.

When taking a break from getting things done, Anna gives into her travel bug and takes off to explore the world. Her adventures lead her to visit new places and lose herself in whatever city, town, village that may be. True to being human-centered, she loves to embrace new cultures and get a different perspective by taking part in experiences that put her in touch with the people living in the places she goes.

As a game-changing disruptor, I hereby pledge to:


• Channel my passion into action
• Harness the power of empathy
• Go “all in” and put the consumer first
• Build a league of heroes who will change the system
• Work fast and cheap, fail regularly, and never accept the status quo
• Never be OK with mild salsa
