Annie is originally from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, but has a big heart for the city of Memphis. With a desire to foster and adopt in the future, Annie is thrilled to join the MFCC team and be a part of this community. She enjoys working with children with speech and language needs in a play-based setting. She loves collaborating with families to achieve the goals desired for their children.

She has pediatric speech therapy experience in a NICU setting and an outpatient clinic. On sunny days, you can find her at Shelby Farms Dog Park with her dog, Belle, and on rainy days you can find her creating art.
