Annie grew up in a multicultural home with a Sicilian father and Puerto Rican mother. Spending a large amount of her childhood on the island of Puerto Rico sparked her passion for language and understanding the complexities of interpretation and translation. Annie graduated from the University of Denver with a degree in international business and marketing. Studying abroad in Madrid, Spain and various global travels opened her eyes to international business customs and eventually, her passions converged when she found iTi. She loves to step outside her comfort zone through travel and is passionate about yoga, health, wellness, skiing & bringing people together, no matter their language or background.
