Although originally from Illinois, Ann attended the University of Oregon as an anthropology major. Post-graduation, she worked as an archaeologist with the Oregon State Museum of Anthropology, but eventually decided to return to her home state where she enrolled as a student at the Chicago School of Massage Therapy. After working as a massage therapist for several years in Illinois, Ann decided to make her way back to Oregon. In her free time, Ann enjoys experiencing live music events and exploring the beauty that Oregon has to offer by hiking along its many trailways.
