A three-time Emmy award winner, Anne has a Master's Degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She's worked at TV stations in Chicago, Milwaukee and, most recently, Portland. Anne’s family lives in Oregon and she helped take care of her Dad who’s legally blind and her mother, who recently passed away from Alzheimer’s Disease.
Before getting into journalism, Anne backpacked around the world solo and even hiked the Himalaya. She helped pay for the trip by working as a secretary in London and Sydney. Anne holds both American and Irish citizenship.
