Annie grew up reading fairytales, playing dress up, and having endless princess teas. Her incessant singing of all the princess songs around the house prompted her parents to enroll her in voice, piano, and dance lessons at four. When she played Gretel in her first opera, she fell in love with performing and how she could use her talents to make people smile and bring happiness into their lives.
Now all grown up, she received her Bachelors Degree in Vocal Music Performance at the University of Northwestern — St Paul and loves that she now gets to don again the costumes of the characters that made her fall in love with stories and singing and spread that love to a whole new generation of princesses. Annie’s favorite princess is Rapunzel, because they both share curiosity, love of adventure, and lots of spunkiness. Whens she isn’t performing, she’s either galavanting all over the Twin Cities with friends, outside with her nose buried in book after book, or spending time with her family and Beckett, their yorkie puppy.
