Ann is a community organizer and progressive voice from Appleton, Wisconsin. Her 33-year career as a speech/language pathologist helping children to find and use their voice eventually led her to empowering adults to share their voice. For Ann, it all began in 2008 following the election of President Obama, Ann joined Organizing for America and later became OFA’s Community Organizer for the Fox Cities from 2010-2014. Her organizing efforts have been instrumental in the formation of local advocacy groups dedicated to getting money out of politics, gun violence prevention, and supporting public education. Being a core team member of the WiLD Project afforded Ann a chance to help raise up new leaders and build connections throughout Wisconsin to work for the common good.
