About Anne

I have been presenting to audiences for over 10 years, researching and writing all my own material with a focus on creating presentations and performances that are interesting, educating and entertaining.

As a newspaper history columnist and publisher of the Topsfield Historical Society's news magazine Local Lore, I'm dedicated to making history interesting for audiences.  

Named Storyteller of the Year by the North of Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau in 2006, I created and presented ground-breaking historical presentations for North Shore Music Theater audiences.


As Vice President of my local historical society, I am a costumed docent for special events throughout the year, where I greet and educate visitors about the historic buildings the Society maintains.

I was Mrs. Essex County 2003, have held leading roles in community theater, and serve as Vice President of my local historical society.

I Make it Easy for You!

I strive to make your experience as easy as possible, so all you have to do is choose your date.

I can send you a jpg and pdf of a promotional poster, if you require assistance in marketing your event.

I bring everything I need for my lectures, including laptop, projector, podium, and a portable PA system if required. All you need to provide is a table for my laptop and projector.

For my character performances, I bring everything I need, including costume items and props, and a portable PA system.

I am extremely flexible and can work with your space. Typically rooms and auditoriums are set up theater-style, but you can let me know if you have other ideas or requirements.
