Annie grew up on the west side of the state, graduating from Western Washington University with a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science. She then attained her Master's in Physical Therapy from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 2000. She and her family moved to North Central Washington in 2005 where her early practice was spent in pediatrics and wound care. Annie now practices primarily in outpatient orthopedics, and earned her Orthopedic Certification in 2014. She enjoys working with all ages, especially young athletes and spends as much time as she can alpine skiing, running, playing soccer, and spending time with her family.
