When Anna Dubrovsky first visited Pennsylvania 20 years ago, on a junior high class trip, she visited the Gettysburg National Military Park—site of the Civil War’s bloodiest battle—and it left a lasting impression on her. She was thrilled, therefore, when her family moved to Pittsburgh soon after—the move gave her a chance to explore the region and its history more thoroughly.
During college, Anna interned at The Morning Call in Allentown and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. After graduating, she went to work as a reporter for the York Daily Record, covering politics and legislation.
Anna is a self-proclaimed victim of wanderlust—she’s lived in more than a dozen cities on three continents. In her travels, she has wandered through the Louvre in Paris and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, cycled the western coast of Ireland, hang-glided over Rio, motorcycled up a mountain in the Dominican Republic, and camped on the Appalachian Trail; she’s marveled at the Taj Mahal, prayed at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, and danced in Havana. But she keeps coming back to Pennsylvania.
