Ani Martirosyan is our Laner of the Week!

Ani Martirosyan

Ani is one of our go-to Chicago Laners. Ani has been such a great addition to the ML team. She joined the team two years ago and has consistently brought great energy to every activation! She likes being a brand ambassador because she enjoys meeting new, interesting people, attending events, learning more about the city and about herself. Ani followed up with, “for example, while working for Lavazza there is so much I have learned about coffee. Good coffee. I don’t think I will be able to feel the same way about just any coffee product. There is so much history to it, it’s fascinating!”

Outside the Lane Ani is an actress. She currently works as a stand-in for Chicago Fire TV show. Ani describes herself as a “highly functioning introvert who is obsessed with literature.” You can find her with a good book and some great Italian food!
