Anne Steves – Net Worth 2023

Anne followed Rick on trips across Europe and took care of the children. Anyway, she does not have her profession, although on at least one occasion a humanitarian event for homeless mothers. Her net worth is at over $500,000, presumably the basis being from the divorce settlement. While her ex-husband’s net worth should be authoritatively at over $10 million.

Career and Professional Life

The profession of Anne Steves was as a nurse and a social activist but there is not much information about her career. She came to the limelight after marrying Rick. She used to go with him on European tours and was always by his side at that time. The show of Ricks Steves premiered on 3 September 2000 and the travel writer documents his experiences on the visual platform as he makes his way through Europe. Anne Steves is more of a homemaker and has no profession that she practices.

Rick studied at the University of Washington and took the opportunity to travel thanks to a student-run program of non-credit courses. Considering that his travels were his passion, in 1980 a traveling guide for Europe “Europe Through the Back Door” was out. He then opened a tourist center in Washington but also began a kind of course for those who wanted to learn to play the piano. His first television show began in 1991 and was broadcast until 1998 when Rick went on hiatus for two years.  Rick has a website on which he posts many useful tips.

It can be said that this guy simply knows how to make money because it is possible to buy planning maps, travel bags, guidebooks, etc. on his site. He still has his HQ in Edmonds, Washington State, where he is also based. Aside from his television shows, Rick is a political and civil advocate. He is a member of the Democratic Party and also endorsed Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential election campaign. He spends one-third of every year researching guidebooks and also shooting his television shows.

Awards and Nominations

This nurse was presented with the highest award given by Rotary, the Paul Harris Fellowship. It was awarded to her as she and her ex-husband purchased a local apartment complex that was recently converted into the YWCA’s Trinity Place. That apartment was provided for women in need and their children.

Relationship Status

Anne and Rick were apparently in a long-term relationship before marrying. Eventually, they tied the knot at St. Thomas in Villanova, Pennsylvania, and held the reception at the Saint Davids Golf Club – the exact date of their wedding ceremony is missing. The only thing that Anne once revealed was when she said that her Biedermeier was made of roses and traces of Hydrangea. Soon Anne was accompanying Rick on trips across Europe. She loved to visit the markets and spa centers on these trips. However, this love journey didn’t last that long.

It seems that these two were not able to save their marriage since it ended in 2010. The request for divorce was filed in 2009 at Snohomish Superior Court in Anne’s birthplace although they were officially divorced a year later. There are rumors that Rick wanted a divorce because he found a new love – the woman mentioned as the cause of this divorce is Trish Feaster, Rick’s travel partner. He named her his girlfriend on his blog in 2012, but it is not known whether this relationship started before or after his divorce.


After the divorce, Anne completely withdrew from TV life, while her ex-husband continued to present his show, and travel to Europe. Although there were discussions on the Internet about whether one of the spouses is gay, we consider that there are no grounds for such a statement. Nevertheless, something wonderful came out of this marriage, and that was their children. Anne and Rick have two children together, a son named Andy Steves and a daughter Jackie Steves. These two followed in their father’s footsteps, and they built careers similar to theirs. It seems that love for travel is in their genes, as these two young people enjoy traveling to Europe and exploring.

Andy has a travel company named Weekend Student Adventures Europe, plus he has produced a travel guide entitled Andy Steve’s Europe: City-hopping on a Budget. As he says, he did not fall from the tree. He traveled with his parents from a young age, and is now very experienced in it, once saying that he is a digital nomad. He even studied in Rome in 2008. Rick frequently posts his children’s photos on his social networks by pointing out how proud he is of them. Jackie enjoys traveling with her parents as well as with friends. She says that Europe can be different, depending on who you are traveling with. Both children are in good relationships with their mother and father.
