Anne was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. Most of her family and friends went to UVA, but she broke the mold by coming to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, graduating in 2011 with a degree in Communication Studies and a concentration in Media Studies and Production. She loved Chapel Hill-Carrboro so much that she decided to stay in the area after graduation. Anne has a passion for all kinds of writing, and she has written magazine articles on a variety of topics, from restaurant reviews to profiles of people and places around the Triangle area. She has also worked in broadcast journalism. In her spare time, she enjoys swimming, going on scenic runs, and, of course, cheering on all of her favorite Tar Heel sports teams.
