Growing up in rural South Canterbury, Anna was introduced to the joys of bush bashing and back country huts at an early age. This soon developed into a passion for skiing and snowboarding and through this, a love for the alpine environment and the beauty and challenges to be found there.
Following a year at Aoraki Polytech in her early twenties, Anna went to spend winters at the remote club ski fields and summers on the west coast glaciers. For the last few years she has been working as a ski patroller on Mt Ruapehu and the Remarkables in Queenstown and as a glacier and trekking guide in the Aoraki Mt Cook area. More recently she has qualified as an assistant ski guide and looking forward to applying her guiding skills and mountain knowledge in this new area.
In her spare time Anna likes to be biking, scrambling, carrying her skis through thick alpine scrub or hiding away with a coffee and a book.
