About Ann

17D6E27C-EAA7-4CAB-9E4C-FDAAA69EAA20Hello! And thanks for stopping by. It’s really an honor to share a little about myself with you.

I am a writer, counselor, and former-corporate-executive-turned-trainer who shares the joy of a life found in Christ with the world. Through the power of words, I remind the doubtful, discouraged, and disheartened of all they were created to be, and give them both the hope and the tools to achieve it. My mission is to encourage and strengthen genuine faith and emotional wellness in your daily life

As a woman of faith, I believe in the importance of a healthy relationship with Christ. As a child of an abusive, alcoholic father, I know that we are not defined by what has happened to us. As an imperfect wife and mother, I am committed to using failures as stepping stones instead of stumbling blocks.

I hold a degree in Psychology from McNeese State University, a master’s degree in Counseling Education from Sam Houston State University, and a certificate in substance abuse counseling. I also have my Associate in Claims and Senior Claim Law Associate designations.

I’m an award winning author with books that include Lessons for the Journey and Hope from the Pit , and am a freelance writer for both radio and print media. I am a member of Realm Makers, Faithwriters, and ACFW.

As an adventurous introvert, I relish the chance to hike in the mountains, ski, or scuba-dive, but I’m most content simply spending time at home. I serve in both the lay counseling and worship team ministries at my home church.

I’m happily married to my college sweetheart and through steadfast love, deep faith, and frequent laughter we have weathered many storms of life including infertility, sibling suicide, and chronic health issues. For almost half of our marriage we lived as the sandwich generation, raising our now-grown and beautiful daughter while caring for my ailing mother. Currently, I balance working work part-time in the corporate world with being a Christian communicator

And finally, I love books, pizza, waterfalls, and animals, though not necessarily in that order.  Now that’s more than enough about me.
