For the last 29 years, it’s been Anne’s privilege to be the Executive Director for the Sudbury Manitoulin Children’s Foundation.
This amazing charity runs two programs for disadvantaged youth and is currently working on the creation of a new program aimed at benefiting children, youth and families in need of assistance.
During this time, Anne has sat on many boards, committees and councils. Anne is blessed with a blended family of 5 kids and 4 grandchildren.
Anne is an animal lover and avid horse enthusiast. She enjoys being an active competitor in the discipline of Reining and has earned both provincial and national championships, qualified 4 times to represent Eastern Canada at the world affiliate finals in Oklahoma and, most recently, earned two top-ten world standings in this sport.
She also enjoys playing the piano, numerous other sports and spending time with her family and friends.
In addition to working for a children’s charity, Anne grew up in a family where contributing to your community was always encouraged.
With zero previous dance experience, she started dancing exactly two years ago with Dancing with Easter Seals Stars and has grown to love the sport of ballroom and Latin dancing. With Bob’s excellent guidance and extreme patience, Anne has even learned to stay off his toes and let him lead – most of the time. So, when asked to “Battle Back” for Easter Seals, there was NO hesitation.
Anne is very excited to be involved once again with Dancing with Easter Seals Stars to help raise funds in support of this wonderful organization and very appreciative of the support that she has received for this adventure from her family and friends.
