Vanderbilt University 615-297-6544 read more A native of Charlotte, North Carolina, Ann came to Nashville to attend Vanderbilt University and never looked back, unless it was to relive her days as a high school volleyball, basketball and softball player. Thanks to her future father-in-law who was a professor at the time and encouraged her to pursue teaching in graduate school, Ann has now been teaching for more than 20 years. When she’s not at school, Ann enjoys reading, taking walks and gardening, particular in the summer, her favorite season of all.
