I have known Ann for the past several years from her work as a Culture Facilitator for WellPoint, Inc. I have found Ann to be one of the most experienced, knowledgeable, and professional leaders and trainers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Ann is a fantastic presenter in front of groups, she has enthusiasm for her subject matter and holds the audience’s attention. Ann has demonstrated commitment to WellPoint and to our culture work by attending meetings and leading assignments—including acting as a culture facilitator, Master Coach, and trainer for WellPoint’s Leadership Exchange and Expo. I have seen Ann interact with various levels of employees and can tell that she is comfortable and well-respected by them all.
Ann is a high energy, dynamic leader. She works very collaboratively with associates at all levels of the organization. While at WellPoint, Ann was instrumental in leading our Culture Awareness Initiative. Not only did she take on a role as Master Coach—to support and lead other facilitators—but as a Director her actions matched her words. Ann looks to gain clarity and resolve issues. Her high energy makes working with her a positive and enjoyable experience.
Ann is a wonderful facilitator and consultant, able to make business and strategic concepts come alive for her participants in a fun and engaging way. Ann is always well prepared and well liked by both her business partners and end-clients. I highly recommend Ann from both an accounting and facilitation perspective.
Ann is a detailed finance manager who never loses sight of helping those of us who are not finance gurus. She provides the technical know-how in a manner that allows everyone to understand the numbers: where they are coming from and where the trends are going. Ann does this with charisma and a sense of humor that meets her customer needs.
Ann is a natural leader with excellent communication skills and the unique gift of building enthusiasm while articulating the message or vision. I have been fortunate to participate in training classes led by Ann and she is equally gifted in presenting highly technical issues to individuals at all levels or helping an organization develop or redefine their corporate culture. It was a pleasure to work with Ann and I feel any organization would greatly benefit from her talents and attributes.
Ann and I co-facilitated culture-shaping sessions for several hundred Wellpoint associates, conveying concepts of accountability, teamwork, filters, managing change, coaching, goals, trust, and understanding behavioral styles. I was privileged to work with such a passionate, dedicated person that was genuinely committed to improving the work and personal lives of the participants. Ann brings a spirit and energy level to work that makes each of us want to be there.
