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 dog, Rocky, and her cat, Gracie, who often cuddle together (and, yes, it’s just as adorable as you imagine).
