Annette joined the CdLS Foundation as the Development Director in August 2020, and is thrilled to be able to put her years of experience in marketing, event planning and development to work helping to bring about greater awareness and support for individuals with CdLS.
A native of Virginia, with a BA in Communications from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA, Annette has lived in New England for more than 20 years. She has spent most of those years as a Marketing Director working in-part with non-profit organizations on special events, fundraising and brand building. Before moving to New England with her family, she was the District Director for the American Cancer Society for the Northeast Region of Indiana. Prior to that, Annette enjoyed an award-winning ten-year career as a broadcast news anchor/reporter. She currently resides with her two sons and two dogs in Longmeadow, MA. Fun fact: Annette loves playing tennis, and can be found on a tennis court somewhere whenever possible.
