Ann believes that life is a precious gift, but we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously. Her upbeat, and friendly personality shines through at work when serving her clients, in her community when volunteering for Operation Christmas Child, which distributes gifts to needy children all over the world, or when organizing fundraisers for her kid’s school. When not helping others, Ann enjoys spending quality time with her husband and two boys; camping, watching them play sports, travelling or just hanging out. In addition, she enjoys running, training for endurance events, and triathlons. Ann earned her B.S. degree from University of Wisconsin – Madison and her Certified Pension Consultant (CPC) designation from the American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries. She has been helping plan sponsors with their retirement plans for over 15 years.
