Annie is a dedicated family gal and spends her free time traveling, trying new foods, reading (for pleasure) and training for/competing in triathlons - she recently competed in her first Ironman competition in Whistler, Canada, which involves a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 mile run. She met her husband, Casey, on their first day of law school. He is also a lawyer in Tacoma and is a much faster triathlete than Annie. They live in Gig Harbor with their two young kids and German Shepherd, Maverick.  Annie loves Disneyland, wants to learn Italian but can’t justify actually learning it, and collects high heels.
