Prior to taking on the role as the CNMI Drug Court Manager, she was the Maternal and Child Health Administrator at the CNMI’s only hospital and healthcare system. She was responsible for and managed eight (8) federally-funded programs at the Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation (CHCC), Division of Public Health Services.

TaAnn also proudly served in the United States Army. After her service she worked for the Federal Government in Honolulu, Hawaii, before moving to the CNMI and starting her career in healthcare and human services. She has been inspired by many, including her resilient mom and hard-working dad who are both retired from the Government of the Republic of Marshall Islands. She is blessed with a humble husband who also happens to be an ELDP alumnus from the CNMI. They are blessed with four beautiful children.
