Anne brings decades of experience helping build Wildland Adventures into a respected international adventure travel icon acquired by Austin Adventures. Her life of adventure started in her younger years alternating between leading camper overland tours through Baja and northern Mexico in winter and working for concessionaires and assisting park personnel in Yellowstone. As their children and grandchildren grew, Anne specialized in designing and co-leading family adventures together with Kurt Kutay throughout the world. After their kids flew the coop she parlayed her love of food, drink, and travel to host wine and culinary adventures including early trips to Argentina, South Africa, Spain, Croatia, and Slovenia. She loves her life in the seaside town of Edmonds, WA where she walks her Tibetan Mastiff daily along the waterfront harbor.
