She began her interior design career 16 years ago after attending Northern Arizona University. Before working in the home building industry her focus was kitchen design and home remodels. During her 3 ½ years with Ashton Woods she has created many happy and cohesive spaces for others. Personalizing your home is a very emotional experience and Anna is skilled at helping her clients to showcase their style and personality! Even outside of the office Anna is immersed in the world of design, spending her time renovating her 100 year old bungalow in one of Phoenix’s historic neighborhoods. She also enjoys traveling any chance she gets, trying new recipes, hanging out at local coffee shops and listening to live music.
