Anne currently serves as the Chair of the Board and as a member of the Grants Committee for IWF. She was first introduced to the Foundation while implementing a grant program focused on supporting women and girls at Frontier Co-op.

Anne earned her degree from American University in Washington D.C., where she worked for several nonprofits and lobbying organizations following graduation. Currently, she works as Director of Marketing & Communications for CRST and is an advocate for finding solutions to the transportation barrier—which is often overlooked despite being a crucial factor for self-sufficiency.

In addition to IWF, she serves on the Board for the American Cancer Society and has previously participated on the Iowa Children’s Museum Board.
