Anne was born in Toronto, Ontario, and raised in Cave Junction, Oregon. She was surrounded by music at an early age with a mom who was both a piano teacher and a piano tuner. She became a regular accompanist of choirs, small groups, and soloists as a teenager and still gets plenty of opportunities for that. As an adult, she discovered the fun of musical theater and is involved with schools and community theaters as time permits. Composing music is her latest endeavor. With a husband and blended family of six children, life is about trying to keep a balance and finding time to fit everything in!
