Anne moved to Loudoun County in 2014 and bought a property of 3 acres, mostly woodland. Her immediate concern was how to best manage the property to preserve and enrich its value as wildlife habitat. She turned to Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy’s Audubon at Home (AAH) program for advice and her property was certified in 2015. The next natural step was the Virginia Master Naturalist program, which she completed in 2017, around the time that she became an LWC Board Member. She also took over coordination of AAH in 2017. Anne is a retired Mechanical Engineer following a 31-year career with ExxonMobil. Her other interests include travel and wildlife, landscape and underwater photography.
