Anne is a wife and mother of three. After graduating from Grand Valley State University, she worked as an activity director at a retirement home in Grand Rapids, MI. After moving to Kenosha, she worked at the American Red Cross as a program coordinator and then at Abbott Labs as a contract coordinator. She returned to school for her dental hygiene degree and thoroughly enjoys her work in that field! Anne’s enthusiasm for Open Wings began early on during the “idea” phase when her daughter attended pre-school with Dr. Hufferd-Ackles’ daughter, Ainsley. She has been a “cheerleader” since then and hopes that her presence on the board can help spread the word about the glorious work being done at Open Wings!
