Anna grew up in Morganton, NC and attended college at The University of North Carolina Wilmington. At UNCW, Anna was an anchor of the student-run TealTV broadcast, Seahawk Central News. After graduating with a double major in communication studies and english, she moved to Charlottesville, Virginia to work as a reporter for WVIR NBC29.

Anna loves the Carolina Panthers (Keep Pounding!) and has a huge soft spot for animals, particularly her own dog, Toby!
