She kept very active with career, family and public office. She worked as an advertising clerk for the Press Democrat in the early 70's and then became an Advertising Manager for a major local employer known as NCI. Ann made a career change in the 1980's when she became deeply involved with alcohol/drug recovery programs.

At each organization, Ann broadened reach and expanded services to women who suffered from alcohol and/drug abuse. Hundreds of women have had successful recovery because of Ann's work.
