Hello, I’m Anna.

My passion is helping you be the confident and courageous leader of your life.

Thirty years ago I was on-track to follow in my father’s footsteps and pursue a career in law, until I got a summer job working in the kitchen of a whitewater rafting company.

That summer I discovered my passion and it changed me forever. I’ve learned that choosing to forge my own unique path is challenging and  exceptionally rewarding.

If you’re ready to forge your own path and be the leader of your life, I’m here for you.

My unique coaching method based in my expertise, experience and training in paddling, yoga, Ayurveda and human potential will give you the tools you need to do hard things and thrive.

Paddling is sometimes overemphasized in instruction causing loss of control and unnecessary energy expenditure. A few years ago I posted this video of me running one of my favorite rapids: Both my

How to uplevel your boof

Creek Week is almost here, and I’m excited to work with the group to uplevel their boof, one of my favorite whitewater kayaking skills. Not only is boofing fun, but it’s also a key technique that allows you to work with rocks instead of being afraid of them. Cultivating a working relationship with rocks goes
