Meet your new Grassroots Manager, Anthony Simmons

My name is Anthony Simmons, and I am excited to introduce myself and let you know I will be working with you and the American Heart Association as the grassroots manager serving Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Kentucky.


I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. In 2019, I graduated from Cleveland State University with a degree in History. I am a huge Ohio State fan and I bleed scarlet and grey. In my previous profession I was the Prevention Manager for a nonprofit drug and mental health institution. Before that I worked on countless political campaigns at all levels of government.

I am truly overjoyed to be a part of the American Heart Association and represent an organization whose mission is building longer, healthier lives. I am excited to meet all the incredible advocates and hear their stories because they are our driving force.

In my free time I like to play basketball with my brothers, watch anime, and am a Mario Kart savant. Also, I love animals so you will frequently find me going to the zoo or the drive-thru safari. When it comes to sports, I’m a huge Steelers fan and love watching Sunday night football. My biggest hobbies are building Legos and listening to music. On weekends I have been known to listen to music for12-16 hours.

Now that you know something about me, I want to get to know you. Over the next few months, I will be reaching out with opportunities for us to chat. In the meantime, feel free to email me

I look forward to hearing from you.
