Anita was born and raised in Chatham. For most of her adult life, she lived in Toronto, establishing her own business as an executive recruiter for multi-national advertising agencies until joining Fox Racing Canada in 2002 as their advertising manager.
In the fall of 2011, Anita acted upon her desire to return to home turf and pursue her passion for photography. In addition to sales of her collection of artography, Anita's recent commercial projects include website photography as well as the photography and production of 'photos-in-motion' video tours. She also collaborated on the photography/production of a newly released hard cover coffee table book.
As a freelance contributor to the Chatham Voice, Anita now adds photojournalist to her portfolio.
