Writer. Educator. Urbanist. Like many country and western songs, Anne’s journey takes off in Texas and continues in Tennessee. Along the way she’s encountered first love, heartbreak, lost dogs, mixed blessings, a few pick-up trucks and finally found home. She holds what are probably a few too many degrees from Texas A&M and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She knows what makes a town tick, how to roll your r’s and the correct usage of comprise and compose. She loves homemade bread, a proper cup of coffee and the Carolina coast. As a project manager, she can dream it and make it happen — all in heels.
