On weekends, you can find Anna most likely at a nearby park or field, cheering on, organizing, or volunteering to provide recreational activities for the youth. One of the biggest joys in Anna’s life has been watching her two sons play sports in tournament and city leagues. She values these organizations and the character and teamwork they build in our youth. There is nothing quite like the look of pride and satisfaction on the face of child who feels they are accomplishing something hard and the acceptance felt when they are a part of a team. Anna also enjoys spending time with her beautiful daughter. Any time left, which isn’t much, Anna enjoys reading, shopping and laughing with her daughter and traveling with her husband and family.
