Ann Torres, Co-Founder
Born in Buffalo, New York Ann Torres found her way to Arizona in 2001 to pursue her passion for teaching. As she developed the necessary skills of organization and commitment to be the best teacher possible she found out that the education world was not the place she was meant to be.
Then in 2006 she was asked to join the Integrated Landscape Team and sell tree maintenance for their tree division ArborPro. This was where she learned her love for being outside surrounded by the beauty of landscape and selling was her true passion. Ann has always enjoyed being around people and is known for her genuine personality and love for all her clients she soon would call her circle of friends.
For a few years she took some time off to take care of her 2 children Antonio now 8 and Iliana 5. She still calls her full time job a mom and wife but decided to get back into sales part time and in 2014 went to work for Lululemon and still is presently.
Now in 2017 she is excited to help grow a family business with her husband Fernando Torres and pursue his lifelong dream of entrepreneurship.
