You will find Anna Jonsson Connell on the floor at Silver Creek Outfitters, helping guests choose clothing, shoes, accessories, and gifts.

Her dream day off? Coffee in bed followed by a long trail ride with her Arabian horse, Boomer and her lab, Kobe, capped off by enjoying a good book and a glass of wine in her garden in Bellevue.
