Email Ann  
In her past life as a journalist, Ann told countless stories from a variety of angles. She can write a story thoroughly and quickly, but, more importantly, she does it accurately and fairly.

Ann heads up our newest office in Columbus, Ohio, where she acts as the most important link between CRA and her clients’ projects. Ann showcases excellent communication and negotiation skills, and contributes and maintains positive company-client relationships at a high standard.

Ann spent 10 years in positions with The State Journal and WOWK-TV in Charleston, West Virginia, doing everything from breaking news and feature reporting to shooting and editing video. You may have seen her on live television reporting and giving commentary, usually on business or political issues. She spent a year coordinating the daily activities of the entire newsroom as the assignment editor and spent nearly four years at the helm of The State Journal as managing editor.

She’s a proud Rotarian, Marshall University graduate, an aunt four times over, and a fan of most things Pittsburgh and all things ’90s. She often speaks in movie quotes.
