Ana Baida, a native of Texas, enjoys simultaneous careers as a higher education administrator and singer. Rarely listening to anyone who says “you can’t,” Ana decided to equally pursue both of her passions: education and choral singing. Ana resides in Atlanta, Georgia, where she serves as the Executive Director of Career Planning and Development at Kennesaw State University. When not fulfilling her full-time responsibilities at Kennesaw State, she sings with the Kinnara Ensemble, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s Chamber Chorus, episodically with a small early music ensemble, and was a founding member of Atlanta-based chamber choir, Coro Vocati. She is also staff soloist and section leader at First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta, and sings intermittently with other professional groups in and around Atlanta.

Ana holds a Bachelors from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, a Masters from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, and a Doctorate from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.
