Anne began her career with NOC guiding on the infamous Wild and Scenic Chattooga River before eventually moving to our elite Paddling School team. As one of NOC’s most experienced instructors, Anne has quite a list of personal accomplishments she passes to Paddling School participants regularly.

Anne enjoys challenging her students directly and giving them the extra push they need to improve their skills on the water. When she isn’t on the water, you can catch Anne on a mountain bike trail and hanging outside her her family and two sons, enjoying the outdoors.
