As Colorado native, I am proud to call Denver home. I’m part of a large, extended family which ingrained my passion for people and a strong sense of community.
Anna was born in southeast Texas into a family of twelve children-eight boys and four girls. She is a graduate of Lamar University in Beaumont, TX . Anna worked for BGI Contractors for 23 years, leaving southeast Texas after a lifetime there, to be near her grandchildren in Colorado. She is fully immersing herself in the Colorado lifestyle and spends much of her spare time enjoying the great outdoors, hiking and taking her grandchildren to the park, pool and wherever else they want to go!

I have been training vision since 1985. In 1993 I completed the C.O.V.D. certification for vision therapy. Learning is an ongoing process, as the science and clinical data continue to evolve. Education and learning acquired a brain injury, and enhancement of sports performance is the areas of vision rehabilitation I have had the pleasure to work in.
