Ann attended college at Park University in Parkville, Missouri, where she graduated with a BA in Business Administration with a concentration in management and marketing. After returning to Kosrae after college, Ann spent the past 13 years working as the Chief Legislative Aide for the Kosrae State Legislature. Ann's primary responsibilities with the Kosrae Legislature include researching and developing legislation; reviewing and analyzing the annual budget proposal for the Kosrae State Government, branches, departments and agencies; keeping up-to-date and maintaining fiscal fund balances; reviewing audit reports; drafting legislative measures and reports for legislative committees; and providing legal analysis on National, Constitutional and State laws to members of the Legislature and the general public. Ann is the Legislative Aide most responsible for the preparation of the Kosrae State budget bill and takes great responsibility and initiative to ensure that the bill and supporting material are prepared correctly and available to the Legislature. In 2005 Ann served as the Legal Staff to the Third Kosrae State Constitutional Convention. We are very fortunate to have a representative in the ELDP group with such strong legislative experience.
