Annie grew up in Kansas, that's right, the heartland. Her stage debut was at the age of three when she started performing with the Lawrence School of Ballet. She gracefully leapt over piles of jeans gathered in the center of the floor and walked on tippy toes for the world to see. However, with a Professor of Theater for a father and a mother with a PhD in Film, Annie was bound to become an actor. She spent her adolescence and early adulthood gracing various public school and community theatre stages with her blossoming ability and learning all she could about her new obsession: acting.
After graduating from the University of Kansas with a degree in Psychology and an emphasis in Cognitive Neuroscience, Annie followed in her parents' footsteps of living a life in the arts. She hit the open road with a national touring children's theatre company and landed in Los Angeles. While in town, she auditioned her way into the Groundlings and decided to hop off the tour and into the big city.
Annie's career has continued to grow in Hollywood. She has appeared in over thirty national TV commercials and print ads and has become one of the voices for the CW Network. She has also appeared on various TV shows including Dexter, Harry's Law, Love Bites, Criminal Minds Suspect Behavior and The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
Annie stays loyal to her theatrical roots. She's a member of Theatre Tribe, a prominent Los Angeles theater group, where she has starred in original works by local and known playwrights. She's also used her powers on the stage preforming stand-up and improv comedy at local venues such as The Improv, The Comedy Store and The Ice House.
When she's not acting, Annie reads… A LOT and makes attempts at being a good LA local by doing pilates and juicing. She also drives a Prius with a yoga mat in it. She has spent time in Northern Uganda helping refugees and started her own, fledgling charity group, Good Fridays.
