About me

Outside of the office I like to participate in running, cycling and swimming.  I completed my first full marathon in April 2013 in Nashville, TN at the Rock-N-Roll Country Music Marathon.  I plan to compete in the Raleigh Half Iron Man in June 2014 -- wish me luck!


Other than physical activities I enjoy attending theater productions and dining at local restaurants.

  • Kenneth D. Burns

    I Have known Ann since she was a legal assistant for me and my partners in a Fayetteville firm many years ago. Even then she had tremendous intellect for litigation matters without formal training. Now that she has the formal training, Ann is a very skilled lawyer and is quite capable. I endorse her completely without any reservation whatsoever.
