Annie Ireland is a former Research and Outreach Associate at PERC. She graduated from Colorado College with a B. A. in Political Science, where she was honored to receive the Edith Bramhall Award for outstanding scholarship in the department. Annie got her feet wet at PERC when she attended the student colloquium and worked as an intern in the summer of 2011. She was so passionate about her experiences at PERC that she wanted to come back after graduating.
Annie grew up in Cleveland, OH, but once she came west for college she knew she wanted to stay and explore. Shortly after graduation from college she moved to Jackson Hole, WY, where she worked at the Orvis store before coming to PERC. In her free time she likes to get outside, fly fish, hike, and she also enjoys making jewelry. She loves dogs and is planning to get one of her own now that she lives in Montana.
