Annie graduated from Webster University in St. Louis, MO with a BA in Early Childhood Education. Shortly after graduating, she decided to move to Florida to work at her most favorite place on Earth, Walt Disney World. She had many roles with the company but most of them centered on training and educating new hires for the company. She was very lucky to meet her now husband while working for the company.
Annie started working with Zola Media 5 years ago and currently works as VP Client Service. She works closely with the design and sales team to make sure our clients’ needs are being met. During her free time, she volunteers at her church and spends time playing with her 4 year old golden retriever, Simba.
