Ana grew up in Panama, Central America, where she developed a sense of connection with nature and everything that surrounded her. Despite growing up in the beautiful and dense jungles of Panama, she doesn’t like heat very much and had always dreamed of seasons and white winters, so after spending some time farming and learning about herbs in Florida, her dream finally came true in 2019 and she moved to Southern Maine to continue her adventures. She apprenticed at Frith in 2019 and is extremely happy to return for her 3rd season making fun concoctions and playing with dirt.
