Annie is originally from Los Angeles and moved to San Francisco in 1994, then to San Rafael in 2002. Annie began singing in shows at age 8, when her piano teacher began casting her in musicals after being impressed that she was writing and singing lyrics to the music in her Shaum Piano Course books. Her minor in college was Music, and she has continued to be a performer, composer/arranger, and sight-reading coach. Annie is a member of the Archbishop's Choir at Holy Virgin Russian Orthodox Cathedral in San Francisco. She taught high-school History and Latin before retiring in 2016, and she is a Navy veteran. These days, Annie is a freelance writer specializing in biography and genealogy. She lives with her adorable husband Marty and their cats Walden and Sierra.
