Anna was born and raised in Juneau, Alaska. She took advantage of an exchange program at her first university to spend a year in Lille, France where she spent a lot of time with a modern dance troupe. Upon her return, she arrived in Fairbanks in 2005 as a transfer student and promptly fell in love with the people, personality and campus of UAF.

Anna graduated from UAF in 2009 with a B.A. in Theater and History. She has worked at UAF since 2012 and she is very excited to work with prospective students to help them achieve their goals through higher education.

Outside of UAF Anna enjoys small scale farming with her husband and children. Her family currently lives in an off-grid farmhouse, managing a small amount of chickens and goats as well as bees and pigs in the summertime. She loves coffee with a deep passion and at last count had six separate devices for making coffee in her home.
