Born in Washington DC, Ann is a certified public accountant who grew up in northern Connecticut and has lived and worked in New York City for many years. Ann has extensive accounting experience in both private industry and public accounting and has previously served on other all-volunteer Boards. When Ann joined the Board of A Better World Fund, she was immediately impressed by the dedication and commitment of the other Board members. The goal of building a sustainable endowment that would continue to make positive contributions to humankind beyond an individual’s life was moving and demonstrated how people, giving just a little, could aggregate and perpetuate their gifts to deserving charities long into the future.
Living in NYC, Ann has developed a deep appreciation for diversity and of the knowledge and benefits that are gained from living in a multicultural environment. While Ann enjoys living in the city, her outside travels have made her conscious and appreciative of the preciousness of nature and how important it is to protect the environment and planet for all of the world’s citizens.
