Annie has a BS in Psychology, a Master of Education degree and many years of experience both teaching and directing programs. During her 15 years in a Wake County nonprofit, she worked as Program Manager, Acting Executive Director and Director of Programs. Annie’s passion for children and families was also fulfilled through her work as a child care teacher, substitute teacher, peer counselor, parenting counselor, Emergency Housing Manager and many other roles often serving the underserved and disenfranchised. Annie states that her education, as well as life experiences, led her to believe the role of early educator for children ages 0-5 is so important because experiences during these years determine the blueprint of a child's future self and life. Annie's goal is to ensure the children at Chapel Hill Day Care Center have a strong foundation for future success.
When Annie is not endeavoring to implement positive programs, she enjoys antiquing, art projects with her granddaughter, Lily, and gardening with her husband of 33 years.
