She has two sons, Ian and Seth who make her very proud with their work in music, theatre and serving their communities with wit and heart.

Ann feels it is important to be respectful and caring of everyone that crosses our path. She tries to be supportive of others by listening and attempting to communicate with words and touch. She feels lucky to continue to learn and experience the many joys that our world shares. Working as a Nurse Practitioner taps the part of Ann that is about serving others. She loves to help women, young and old to learn about their bodies, their capacities and how to keep themselves healthy.

As for hobbies, Ann enjoys working with fibers, particularly knitting, spinning and weaving. She sees lots of theatre, dance and film. She is re-reading some favorite books and working on reading more of the classics.
