In this edition of East Idaho Newsmakers, Nate Eaton talks with Anne Voilleque.

Anne is actively involved in the community and has been a huge supporter of the Idaho Falls Symphony for years. She supports arts-related organizations and is heavily invested in the renovation of the Idaho Falls Civic Center for the Performing Arts.

Anne is very passionate about Idaho Public Television and participates in yearly telethons by matching donations on money contributed from eastern Idaho residents.

Anne and her wife, Louise Nelson, were one of the first gay couples to get married in Idaho Falls when the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage was legal. They have donated millions of dollars to important causes and created a one million dollar endowment in the Idaho State University Native American Business Administration Program.

Anne has been involved in global causes to champion for women and declares herself as a proud liberal with many conservative friends.

Watch the video above for the entire conversation.
