Anne hasn’t always been just a writer. For three years in the late 90s, she managed a profitable bookstore. She then took a year to learn the ins-and-outs of non-profit budget analysis. When she realized math was her arch-nemesis, she jumped into the world of communication, first as a marketing and business development associate for a top-50 dot.com and then as a graphic communications designer and ad copywriter. In 2003, she took her first ministry position and spent six years on staff at various churches in communication, technology and project management roles. In 2009, Anne left her steady paycheck and health insurance behind and currently desires to help as many people as possible as a freelance writer, strategy consultant, and all-around Jill of Most Trades. Anne has helped raise over $2 million dollars for various non-profit organizations and she’d like to help you, too.
Anne has partnered with:
- Zondervan Publishing (author, Bible contributor)
- Thomas Nelson Publishing (author, copy editor, Bible contributor)
- Baker Books (developmental editor)
- The Youth Cartel (managing editor)
- Seth Godin (eBook contributor, copy editor)
- Blood:Water Mission (copywriter)
… and many other people and organizations ranging from human resource firms to real estate investors to advertising and new media agencies to churches to her friends and even her little brother.
Anne is an advocate for Compassion International and Blood:Water Mission. She was a cyclist on the 2010 Ride:Well Tour, a two month long, 3000 mile cross-country cycling tour in Summer 2010. The trip from San Diego to Myrtle Beach raised awareness and funds for water projects in Africa. She’s also a big fan of The Mentoring Project and To Write Love on Her Arms.
