Annie relocated to Bend in 2002 and worked part-time as a long-term care assessment nurse and running a bed and breakfast for 17 years. One of the primary reasons she moved to Bend was to become involved in and supportive of the community in a small town. She has volunteered with neighborhood associations and city committees. Annie has lived in Milwaukee, Washington DC, and New York City and has founded several businesses. She is an entrepreneur and community activist to the core! She is a mom of three grown children and five grandchildren living on both coasts and in the Midwest and visiting them as often as possible. Annie will encourage the state and local league members to understand our positions on issues to empower members to advocate with one voice to community leaders, league members and legislators.
