Annie's love with the sea began when her father gave her an heirloom Dyer dinghy and a pair of oars at the age of six. Growing up in Rhode Island, the mecca of sailboat building, gave her a solid footing in the boating community. As a young woman, she crewed on many racing boats and later served as a chef on a charter yacht in the caribbean. She has been a member of the Barrington, Ida Lewis, and New York Yachts Clubs and trade groups.
Educated in New England, Annie earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Rhode Island and her Master's in Business, from the University of New Hampshire, with a concentration in marketing management,graduating magna cum laude.
Prior to founding Marine Marketing & Design, Annie held titles such as; sales representative for Soundings Magazine, sales manager at Dyer Boats, and director of marketing at Hunt Yachts.
Annie now spends most of her time divided between the west coast of Florida and New England. Annie speaks French fluently and has travelled extensively on her 65' sloop.
