A life-long Saint John resident, Anne grew up in a family that recognized and promoted the value and responsibility in giving back to the community.
That commitment to community led Anne to the Saint John Human Development Council where she spent 20 years learning the ropes of the non-profit sector, and managing the region's Community Information and Referral Centre. During her time at HDC Anne developed a passion for the work happening in Saint John around poverty reduction. Anne joined the staff of the Crescent Valley Resource Centre in 2010 as Executive Director. The Crescent Valley and adjoining Anglin Drive neighbourhoods comprise approximately 375 social housing family-units and are home to many newcomer families.
