Annie Joined SVA in 2015 after earning her degree in Geology/Astronomy from Missouri State University in 2010. Immediately thereafter, she spent a few years in Indianapolis before moving with her long-time partner, Blaine, to Seattle. Annie loves spending time gardening, bird watching (with her kitty Leo, of course!), tracking weather data, sailing, and eating Mexican food. Besides her cat Leo, she also shares her home with chickens Irma, Hildi, Gert, Olga, and Hedwig as well as two ducks names Scuttlebutt and Dinglehopper, and a finch named Huxley.
