With AEC since 2017, Anatachea has grown with the company and manages accounts, logistics and all things day-to-day. A native to Chico, Ca (where AEC is headquartered), she has proved to be the reliable backbone of helping the company grow since its days in infancy. She’s often the first point of contact for our customers and partners and helps to oversee the success of each order fulfilment. In her off-time she’s more than often 100% occupied with her three kids! However, she does enjoy the occasional Snoop-Dogg concert!
