Anna grew up in the Midwest and found her love of the outdoors running through cornfields. Growing up, her grandparents gave her many books about traveling, the world, and the environment. She rarely went a day without a book in her hand. Her love for learning and reading drew her to study archaeology at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse where she got her BA in Archaeology and Anthropology. Though the cornfields were exciting to explore, the mountains were calling and Anna moved down to Brevard last summer. She was so excited to join the GRP family last summer and is even more excited to return this summer!
