Outside the office

As a Utah native, Annaka grew up exploring the rivers and mountains of the American West. When not in the office, she has a difficult time sitting still and enjoys bushwhacking up (and skiing down) any mountain in sight. Annaka also loves cooking and trying to wear out her dog, Pfeiff.
