Since 2014, Anne has been an official member of the Mohu team. But her connection to and passion for Mohu goes all the way back to 2012, when she officially cut the cord and picked up an original Leaf antenna in lieu of her overpriced pay TV package. She’s passionate about helping folks discover the freedom of choice (and money savings) that cutting the cord can provide and helping spread the word about the availability of quality TV for free over-the-air. Her personal cord cutter home setup includes a Mohu Sky 60 in her attic and a Roku Streaming Stick on each TV.

Beyond cord cutting, she loves to travel, bike, play indoor soccer, golf, and spend time with her family & friends.
