Position: Office Manager

Anna earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Studies with concentrations in Conservation Biology and Sustainable Agriculture from Warren Wilson College in 2010.

She is incredibly grateful and proud to be a part of this organization and this community. 

In her spare time, Anna can be found working in her garden, making pottery, fly fishing, reading and sitting by the fireplace listening to old country records with her Chocolate Labrador named Loretta and her tomcat named Hank.
