As a graduate from Virginia Tech with a BA in Communications focusing on Public Relations and Marketing, Anne loves her Hokies. As a Hokie, she spent her time as a Sports Marketing and Promotions Intern for Virginia Tech’s Athletic Department and directed many marketing campaigns for Kappa Delta Sorority's philanthropic events. As the absolute last person you think would be from New Jersey, Anne loves her Garden State and taylor ham. As a former lacrosse player, she loves watching and playing all sports. She makes healthy, delicious muffins, and calls them “MuffAnnes” with the ultimate goal of making it big like Mrs. Fields.
What three things could Anne not live without? Peanut butter, Asics and clothing sales. What are Anne's favorite saying or quotation?
"A lady, sitting next to Exxon CEO, Raymond Loewy, at dinner struck up a conversation.
'Why did you put two X's in Exxon?'
'Why ask?' he asked
'Because', she said, 'I couldn't help noticing?'
'Well', he responded, 'that's the answer.'
