Cody Anne & Michael


Cody Anne transferred to Prescott College in 2004 after two years at the University of Miami and traveling to New Zealand and the Bahamas on exchange programs. In 2006, she graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Environmental and Human Health Studies. ”I heard about at Prescott College from a friend and co-worker at Denali National Park. School was never my favorite thing and I was done with the University of Miami. When I heard that there was a way for a great school to accept all the various credits I had accumulated and allow me to still graduate in a total of four years, I knew Prescott College was for me.”

Cody Anne enjoyed her time at Prescott College so much that they stayed in the community after graduation. She married Micheal Yarnes, Prescott College alumni, and they both agreed their time here was transformational. Cody Anne states, “We gained skills and became part of a great community that neither of us would have otherwise found.” “Michael and I always say that one of the most important life skills we learned at Prescott College was how to conduct research. This made a huge impact on our personal and professional lives. Self-direction is extremely important in small business, and at Prescott college was all about self-direction.”

Currently, Cody Anne owns a successful real estate sales team, and Michael owns Rent Right Management Solutions. Cody Anne states, “For both of us, helping our community is the most satisfying part of our careers.  We love it here and everything we do revolves around making it a better place to live.” Their newest venture is an indoor climbing gym called Gripstone Climbing. “Gripstone has been the fun addition to all the hard work we have been doing in this town for many years. We are creating something for this community that we love and enjoy so much.  This gym will be a community of its own and fill a much-needed niche in the Prescott Area. We are so excited to be a part of it!”
