Anne grew up in rural upstate New York and attended SUNY at Oswego. She spent one year at UCLA and realized snow was not the way to go. Vowing never to shovel the driveway again, she attended Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and has been firmly planted in California ever since. Anne started her legal career as a public defender in Los Angeles. After 5 years of defending the downtrodden, she moved to Santa Rosa for a sea change in her profession to Workers Compensation. Anne, Santa Rosa, and Worker’s Compensation proved to be a perfect fit.
Anne has 2 favorable published Court of Appeal decisions to her credit. The Hutton case helped define causation percentages for psychiatric injuries. Always with her eye on the workers’ compensation community she started the Northbay Workers’ Compensation Association in 1994. She is the current legal advisor to COSIPA and participates in seminars throughout California.
Anne has relatives she likes living in Jackson Wyoming. The Tetons are one of her favorite places. She enjoys her dogs, kids, and just about any adventure.
