Congresswoman Anna Eshoo is a trailblazer, proven problem solver, and national leader with an extensive record of achievements and critical subject matter expertise.
Anna has served the people of San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties with great distinction.
Like many of her constituents, Anna is a proud first generation American.
Her father, an Assyrian Christian, fled with his mother to escape a campaign of genocide waged by the Ottoman Empire against Christians around the time of the first World War. Her mother, an Armenian and also a Christian, fled the same violence and persecution. Both came to America as children and like so many immigrants spent a lifetime giving back to their community in gratitude for all that was given to them.
Anna’s family experience has had a tremendous impact on her social justice, human rights and immigration policy work and it guides her efforts to protect the vulnerable and underrepresented and level the playing field - whether they’re consumers, patients, children, seniors or racial minorities.
Anna is a proud graduate of Cañada College and the CORO Foundation and was awarded an Honorary Degree by Menlo College. She is the proud mother of Karen and Paul and a devoted aunt and godmother.
