Her parents and 3 brothers have gifted her with an inquisitive spirit and encourage her to never take anything for granted.
Her willingness to look at the world with joy and wonder is what propelled Anna into a truly breathtaking career as a diver. Her intense curiosity to explore the unknown places of the Universe made her dream of being an astronaut. However, it was Anna’s childhood adventures that led her to become an explorer of the deep sea instead. With every fascinating encounter she had with water, Anna became more motivated to be a great diver, just so she can experience the beauty of this secret world.
After spending years as a technical scuba diver, Anna was thirsty for more knowledge and wanted to continue challenging herself. As she joined a free diving course in March 2007, she was immediately hooked. By November of that year, she successfully broke national and worldwide records in free diving. As the years went by, Anna’s skills and techniques only got stronger as she worked tirelessly as a cold water diver and Navy Seals trainer.
