Life experiences

After graduating from UW-Milwaukee in 2017, Anne began working as a mental health and substance abuse professional.  Anne has an array of life experiences that she brings into her practice, building on empathy and understanding.  She worked in the field of architecture and building, as project manager and small business owner, from designing to swinging hammers.  Anne is a parent of two young adults and shares her home life with her partner and their two cats, Nick and Sam.  She has also found recent joy in slowly switching to a plant-based diet.  She strives to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle, understanding what it's like when she doesn't!
