Ann grew up in rural North-Central Pennsylvania.  For the past fourteen years, she has lived and worked in Alaska.  As an educator, Ann dedicated herself to her Alaska Native students in remote villages throughout the state.

Ann now resides in Teasdale with her husband and three dogs, Kona, Penny, and Squirrel.  Ann loves her family, animals, and overalls.  She is also passionate about the conservation of the African Painted Dog.

Ann is grateful for the part that CCAW has played in her transition to her new career.  She is actively working on a veterinary technician degree so that she can further help the animals she works with and encounters on a daily basis.  CCAW has become her new home and she is excited for the future and her role in the organization.
