Annah Kessler grew up in Portland, Oregon where she was a competitive athlete in a variety of sports. She moved on to play Division III lacrosse at the University of Redlands. After college, Annah found herself bored without the mental and physical challenges that come with being a competitive athlete. She picked up boxing on a whim, and instantly fell in love with the intensity of the sport.
Annah’s 103 year old grandmother (turning 104 in March) is her hero as she is the sharpest and most determined person in Annah’s life. Her grandmother inspires her to be a focused, driven and honest in all aspects of life.
Passionate about athletics as a way for kids to discover their character, build confidence and develop a tool set for the rest of their lives, Annah is honored to be fighting for G.A.K.A.D. Annah believes that people are the creators of their own destiny, with enough focus and thought you can accomplish anything you put your mind to.
