Ann provides content strategy for Digital Services Georgia, helping state agencies ensure their websites meet Georgians’ needs quickly, easily, and effectively. She has over 20 years of experience in writing copy and wrangling content for organizations in the non-profit and private sectors.
Her career spans a diverse array of industries ranging from consumer products, healthcare, logistics, and education to retail, food service, CPG, electronics, advertising, marketing, tech, entertainment, and more. Ann is happiest when she’s collaborating with and learning from people who are a lot smarter than she is, which happens a lot.
Ann grew up in Tampa, Florida, where she spent her formative years fighting off mosquitoes and avoiding brown, scurrying bugs of varying sizes. After graduating from high school, she headed to Atlanta, where she earned her BA in English from Emory University. She currently lives in East Atlanta with her cat, Gracie, whose diversified interests include sleeping, snoozing, dozing, resting, lounging, slumbering and, when the mood hits, the occasional catnap.

What is one of your proudest accomplishments?
Helping to get the COVID-19 state services resources section up and running on Georgia.gov just three days after joining the team (with tons of assistance and support from my teammates, of course!), and then managing and updating that content every day to ensure Georgians had access to the latest information. It feels good to know we can provide critical information to people during such an unprecedented crisis.

If you could only have 3 apps on your smartphone what would they be?
- Google (to have by-default access to everything I need)
- Google Maps (to combat my “no sense” of direction)
- Facebook (to help me stay in touch with friends and family [and several people I barely recall meeting] near and far)
