Ann joined FXFOWLE in 1997 and has been instrumental in the development of the firm’s Cultural/Educational practice. As Studio Director, she oversees studio operations and strategies. Ann describes her approach to architecture as “creative logic.” Her strength is her ability to blend astute analytical and organizational skills with creativity and spirit. Inquisitive and optimistic by nature, she questions the status quo and tests alternative strategies. She is also a member of FXFOWLE’s Steering Committee, collaborating with colleagues on establishing firm wide policies and procedures.

Among Ann’s many contributions during her tenure at FXFOWLE are the award-winning phased addition and renovation to the American Bible Society headquarters, which received an Award of Merit from the New York State AIA, the development and implementation of master plans for the Spence School, LaSalle Academy, the Loyola School, Ramaz School, Grace Church School, and a new Science and Technology Center for LaSalle Academy. Ann was also the project architect for the expansion of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, CT.

Ann is on the Advisory Council of NEW (Non-traditional Employment for Women), an organization that trains women and places them in careers in the skilled construction, utility, and maintenance trades, helping women achieve economic independence and a secure future. She is on the AIA New York Chapter 2012 Outreach Committee, and a member of the Society of Campus and University Planners. Previously, Ann was the Chairperson of the AIA Professional Practice Committee from 1999–2004. She was selected by the New York City Department of Education to serve as a juror amongst a panel of architects, photographers, and educators for the PS Architecture student photography competition. She has spoken on Greening Your Practice, and organized workshops and panel discussions including: “Working in the Public Sector”; “The Impact of Technology on Practice”; “Contractor Selection—Finding the Right Fit”; “Parenthood and the Profession”; and “Small Practice Management Workshop.” Ann was named the 2012 Distinguished Alumnus in Architecture by Washington University’s Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design, Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts.

Ann is a graduate of Washington University in Saint Louis, where she earned both a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master of Architecture. She is a registered architect in the state of New York and a LEED Accredited Professional.
