Meet HelloSociety Pinterest influencer Anne Reczka, a behavioral therapist from Calgary, Alberta! She did her schooling in Calgary where she studied psychology and sociology at Mt. Royal University and now works with junior and senior high school youths with autism. She’s not a huge fan of the cold weather in Calgary (down to -40 degrees Celsius!) but her “family, friends, and boyfriend definitely make it worth staying.” In the summers she’s able to enjoy warmer weather. Anne’s mom is from Italy and her parents have an olive farm in Tuscany, Italy where she spends most of her summers.
Anne’s hobbies and interests include travel, cooking, yoga, fashion, and spending time with her dog Georgie, friends, or family. “Calgary is great because it’s so close to the beautiful rocky mountains so I try and take advantage of that whenever possible.” She also loves trying out new restaurants and food trucks. Watching Hockey is another one of her favorite things to do with friends. “Go Flames!” Anne’s passion for style, home decor, and cooking has earned her over 674k Pinterest followers!
When did you start using Pinterest and what inspired you to make an account?
I can’t remember exactly when I signed up for Pinterest, but it was probably around 3 or 4 years ago. A few of my friends who already had accounts introduced me to Pinterest and I was really excited to start, as I love looking at fashion blogs and I was constantly saving photos on to my computer. Pinterest was a great way for me to organize and categorize these photos (and free up some much needed space on my hard drive).
Why do you like Pinterest?
I love Pinterest because it’s a way for me to curate my own online magazine with everything I love and want to save for later. I like that I can see an outfit, pin it and know I can reference it later on a day I’m feeling uninspired or struggling to find something to wear. Pinterest helps me create the best version of my personal style and I hope I can do that for my followers as well! I also love all the recipes! I cook a lot and I love knowing I can search for a recipe and quickly and easily find what I’m looking for or find new recipes to try. (more…)
