Anna Reeves began her career when she was 15 years old by baking and selling cakes and sweet treats in her local community. She developed a love for operating a small business and coupled with an entrepreneurial spirit she owned and operated Anna’s Bakery Boutique for 6 years. During that time she was active in local government affairs by initiating a plan to restore an old building to be utilized as a library for the City Of Blythe as well as serving as an ambassador for the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce. Anna also worked on a city counsel campaign for a local candidate that would eventually be elected for a seat.
