Motivated by the loss of many relatives who died of cancer-related diseases, and in particular, her uncle, Lt. Governor of VA, Anne is a dedicated advocate of environmentally conscious organizations. She is on the board of several other nonprofits that use the arts to enhance and transform lives. Among these include Arts for Healing and the American Performing Arts Collaborative, a Harlem-based theatrical nonprofit. She is very interested in connecting other like-minded organizations that can work together to solve the enormous problems facing children right now and in generations to come. She is inspired by her four wonderful children and by the Reynolds family of Virginia who implemented the first recycling program in the aluminum industry.
