About Annabelle Hoover
Annabelle spent most of her life in the Pacific Northwest, primarily the Seattle, WA area. She graduated from the University of Washington with a creative writing major, and is now a lifelong UW Husky football fan. When her husband Alan Straub took a position at W&L, the family made the cross-country trek from Bainbridge Island to Lexington. Annabelle has spent much of her career in the running and outdoor industries, working to improve supply chain, operations and customer service at Brooks Running and Outdoor Research. Annabelle is excited to put her corporate experience to work in the nonprofit world, and contribute to the community in a meaningful way.
