Ann is a lifelong performing artist. She has performed on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and at major venues across the country, working with top producers and directors throughout her extensive career. When she became a mother, she took a brief hiatus from performing to channel her undying theatrical passion into a new area: Performance Education. There, she found challenges and rewards to rival those of Broadway. She immersed herself in education advocacy, volunteer work and lending her voice to the voiceless. This included a seat on the Community Education Council. She directed childrens' plays, mentored children in acting, singing and auditioning, and introduced an after-school drama program at a NYC Public High School.
Ann continues to advocate for children on the Advisory Board of the American Songbook Association, which provides cabaret workshops to underprivileged students in the NYC public school system. And, for over 20 years, Ann has been a member of Soka Gakkai International, a buddhist NGO of the United Nations determined to realize true world peace one person at a time.
Today, Ann has rededicated herself to her career as a performing artist and as you might imagine, she loves it more than ever.
