Anne was born in the area and lived here until she left for University in Glasgow.
She lived in the city for the next twenty years during which time she enlisted in the Territorial Army and built a business in the fitness industry.
Those two things combined to create a passion for outdoor sports and activities.
She moved back to this area several years ago and has been running her business CrossFit Castle Douglas since then.
She uses Loch Ken a great deal for kayaking, wild swimming and to escape from the stresses of running a business!
Her other interests include wood carving and drystane dyking.
