Father Anne was ordained on October 16, 2021 in Albuquerque, NM through the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests. She has a deep love of the Society of Jesus and Ignatian spirituality, which blossomed over twelve years of ministry with Jesuits. She earned a Master of Divinity from Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley, CA, and has worked in several parishes in the JesuitsWest Province.
In addition to her formation and work in the Roman Catholic Church, Father Anne has a Master’s degree in Rhetoric and Writing Studies from San Diego State University, and 24 years of experience in strategic communications.

Deeply grounded in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, Father Anne has a passionate interest in participating in the discernment of what the next era of the Roman Catholic Church will look like. While many have understandably walked away from the Roman Catholic Church, Father Anne obeys the call of the Holy Spirit to collaborate with God on the project of equality within one of the most powerful institutions in the world.
