As a speaker and author, Ann prepares people to execute powerfully in ever-changing environments. From keynotes to executive retreats, Ann influences audiences through her experiences and 25 years of leadership. She is the author of four books: Ambition on a Mission (2007), Moxie for Managers (2011), Why Mentoring Matters (2013), and The Joy of Mentoring (2015). They have become popular books for companies committed to creating strong leaders and cultures in this fiercely competitive marketplace.
Ann knows people from many dynamics as a former Silicon Valley corporate attorney and a current CEO. Working alongside some of the best and brightest lawyers, entrepreneurs, VCs, and business owners, Ann incorporated companies, negotiated mergers, managed venture-backed financings, and held the hands of many anxious CEOs, and she loved it.
She then started her law firm representing over 75 entrepreneurs, grew it until her CEOs became friends, and sold it to a more prominent firm that continues to represent entrepreneurs and start-ups nationwide. In 2003, Ann followed her passion for working with leaders and launched LifeMoxie Mentoring & Leadership to transform corporate America by changing where and how people lead. Clients such as Kaiser Permanente, Duke Energy, Macy's, and Southern California Edison love her programs, books, and speeches.
