Anne has lived in Amesbury with her husband, Forrest, for most of her adult life, raising three children, and volunteering for a variety of community organizations throughout that time, in addition to working in the area. She discovered the Newburyport Chamber Music Festival in 2010 and was delighted to be asked to join the board a year later. Since then she has served at various times as Secretary, Treasurer, and President. From January 2018 through December 2020, she took on the role of volunteer Executive Director, but now is happy to share her former duties with other board members. Anne is "officially" retired, but works part-time from her home. In addition to music, she loves history and reading.
