Annaka graduated from the University of Utah 2016 with undergraduate degrees in Environmental and Sustainability Studies as well as Urban Ecology. She utilized her two degrees by taking a year to ski too much and work mediocre service jobs.
In 2017, she realized how difficult it is to make a living skiing and decided to return to school to work on a graduate degree in City and Metropolitan Planning at the University of Utah. Annaka is currently finishing her degree and specializing in Transportation and Smart Growth and holds a special interest in active transportation.
