Ana Abraham has over 16 years experience developing winning online software and marketing strategies for some of the biggest Web brands today. Ana was a pioneer in the online space creating one of the first online real time chats for the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology. The real time chat hosted questions from patients across the United States to physicians attending their annual conference in San Francisco. This was one of the first internet events and put the association on the map as a patient centered organization. Ana went on to lead the development team and was responsible for the user interface architecture and online buying experience for 1-800-Flowers which lead to 1800Flowers.com moving from a small phone-based company to a public internet-based company which went on to beat the giant FTD in the online market space.
