Annie has a strong passion for working with youth. In the spring of 2011, Annie interned with The Kennedy Center of Trumbull, CT with a placement at Bridgeport’s after school “Lighthouse Program.” During her time there, she provided academic and social support services to at-risk and special needs students. This experience fostered Annie’s interest to continue working with children in the inner city school setting.

She has played competitive sports all of her life and is still currently active in organized recreation softball and basketball across Connecticut. Annie has been coaching youth softball and basketball since 2003. Currently she is the Assistant Varsity girls basketball coach at St. Joseph High School in Trumbull, CT. Annie coaches youth girls basketball year round as well including the Weston 8th grade girls travel team, the Fairfield County Huskies 8th-11th grade fall girls AAU teams, and the 10th grade CT Hoopsters girls AAU team in the spring.
