Bio: A mom to one 12 year-old son, Ann has worked in public relations and marketing for almost 20 years. As a publicist and special events director for a major motion picture company, she worked on films such as The Matrix, Steven Spielberg’s A.I. Artificial Intelligence and the first two Harry Potter films. She was named “One of the Top 15 Most Influential Event Planners in New York City” by an entertainment industry trade publication. After the birth of her son, she gave up the glamorous life (and the hour long commute) to work closer to home, handling public relations and marketing for a natural products company. Her freelance career includes writing for national and international publications and serving as both a reporter and columnist for Fairfield County based websites and magazines and is the founder of the Fairfield County lifestyle blog, Fairfieldista.
