Hailing from Mt. Baker, Bellingham WA as her home 'hood', Anne-Britt grew up skiing from the time she could walk in a professional ski family.  Both her parents were certified PSIA ski Instructors and she become the youngest Associate Certified PSIA instructor in the nation at the age of 14 ... at the time anyway, perhaps that record has been beat or matched at this time.  She also competed in college for Western Washington's ski team and eventually became assistant Ski Team coach at Mt. Baker.

On graduating from high school, Anne-Britt moved to Jackson Hole for a year of professional ski bumming as a JH Ski School instructor. Then on to Durango to finish a degree in Accounting and double minor in Finance and Business Admin.  The next year she achieved her real estate license and managing broker's license two years later and opened her own brokerage in Silverton with a partner there.  On moving to Telluride in 2011 so that her two daughters Tia and Sadie could attend school here and Ski PE(!), she opened her own brokerage here, Mountain Rose Realty and signed on with TSSC to fulfill her need to be in 'the industry'.  She enjoys helping families through the years at TSSC and getting kids stoked on skiing!
