  • I have worked both as a childbirth doula and in hospice care.  

  • I used to own an online bakery called Vermont Shortbread Company.

  • I've played the piano since I was 8.

In Between Spaces

Ann is proud to have her essay, "My Father's Feet" featured in In Between Spaces, Stillhouse Press’s first anthology which centers the experiences of thirty-three disabled poets, short-story writers, and essayists as they navigate the physical and emotional complexities of disability, chronic illness, neurodivergence, and mental illness.  This timely collection of often-overlooked voices celebrates joy, freedom, and the power of agency, while at the same time confronting and challenging the stigmas and barriers, visible and invisible, that too often come to define life with a disability.


Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale.
