Pastor Ann began serving the Brown Swamp United Methodist Church family in January 2016. She is striving for excellence for the Glory of God in her ministry there, her progress along the Methodist Ordained Elder track, her Seminary studies at Asbury Theological Serminary as part of that track, and her roles as wife and mother. While Ann is passionate about a reawakening in the global church, she leads the people of Brown Swamp and the Aynor and Conway, SC communities in ministry and mission to the least of these, while nurturing and building up the Body of Christ through the Word made incarnate through the loving, living, and learning in Christian fellowship.

Ann has led a life of adventure (ask her about some of her exploits). She is a graduate of Univeristy of North Carolina, and loves following all Tar Heel sports. Prior to pastoral ministry, she work in the field of advertising. She finds her center with God by balancing spiritual disciplines with time with her husband Andy, their two daughters, writing devotions and poetry, and pushing herself in running, swimming, cycling, and mountain biking.
