She was previously employed as an IT Analyst at the PA Leadership Charter School for three years. Ambria has been accepted to the Computer Science and Legal Studies programs here at Widener and will begin taking classes this summer.

Outside of work Ambria has been playing the piano and singing for the past 15 years. She also enjoys learning about the law, doing community service work, and learning about programming.

Anu Yalamanchi

 Anupama (Anu) Yalamanchi joins ITS as a Programmer Analyst.  She is an experienced programmer and web developer whose most recent employment includes nine years as an Application Developer in higher education.

Anu holds a bachelor’s degree in math and chemistry from Nagarjuna University in India and a master’s degree in computer applications from Andhra University, also in India.

Anu prides herself on having a good sense of teamwork, quality, and integrity.  She is self-motivated to learn new things, and she will be working closely with the Enrollment Management areas of the university to understand and support their business needs.

Doylestown is home for Anu and her family, and, when she can find the time she enjoys painting–usually flowers on canvas.  She has some lovely pictures of her work on her phone.  Ask her to see them when you meet her!
