EVENTS SPECIALIST

Ann serves as the Events Specialist for Blue Zones Project Scottsdale and comes from the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce, where she was the Program and Events Director. There, she developed, managed and executed hundreds of events in addition to leading and growing Scottsdale Rising Young Professionals through targeted programing and engagement.

Previous employment includes the City of Scottsdale, where Ann gained knowledge about Scottsdale’s Senior Services by managing distribution of food programs and meals to seniors and disabled adults at the Via Linda Senior Center. Her diverse background encompasses work with Fortune 100 companies and non-profit organizations, offering a unique perspective and ability to create connections through events and programming – ultimately fostering a strong, respected, and bonded community.

A Chicagoland native, Ann earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a concentration in Public Relations from Aurora University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude and had the privilege of being the commencement speaker. Her personal health and wellness lifestyle has been in alignment with Blue Zones since purchasing the original National Geographic special edition when it first hit newsstands. Ann is thrilled to be working with the local Scottsdale team to help empower the community she has come to know as home.

Kayaking, roller skating, hiking, concerts and movies are just a few interests that keep Ann’s calendar full. She is always up for new experiences and road trips with her husband, Pat, and dog, Casey.
