Anne joined The Arc Community Advocates in July 2013 as a full time Advocate and in May of 2015, agreed to become the Interim Executive Director, until Susan Rush was hired. Anne is excited to return to service of our clients. She has over 20 years experience serving individuals with disabilities, having worked for Interact of Michigan, MRC Industries, Pathways and Lawrence Public Schools. Anne was one of the first Employment Training Specialists in Michigan, specializing in providing supported employment services to individuals with developmental disabilities and mental illness. Outside of her career, Anne has pursued a variety of interests and says, "I like to know how things are done so I sometimes take the long road and learn about the process, which I believe gives me a better understanding of myself and the world I live in". She is also a Certified Massage Therapist with a small but satisfying practice. She tends to a farm with a variety of animals and you can find her selling fruits and veggies at the Kalamazoo Farmer Market in the summer.
