Annie is no stranger to the Appalachian Mountains. She was born in Blacksburg, Virginia and was a nationally-ranked swimmer growing up.
At age 14, she went to train at the Bolles School in Jacksonville, Florida. She later swam for Georgetown University where she graduated with a degree in International Affairs in 2005.
It was while working for former U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller after college that Annie found a home in the Mountain State. From the hope and heartbreak of the Sago Mine Disaster to helping West Virginia service members injured in Iraq, Annie loved working for West Virginians on Capitol Hill.
When she’s not working, Annie loves playing tennis, whitewater rafting, and watching WVU play football with her husband, D.J.
Annie began her career at WVVA as a newscast producer in April of 2013 and quickly moved to her current role as multimedia journalist in our Beckley Bureau. A dedicated and die-hard journalist, Annie thrives on breaking news and finding great stories in unexpected places.
