Ann is passionate about the possibility of change. Starting her career as a stockbroker in the US, she adopted a 100% plant-based lifestyle more than fifteen years ago and soon after started investing in companies whose products she believed would make a difference. What started out with a passion for plant-based foods has turned into an obsession with regenerative soil and microbes. She is hoping that algae will be the next breakout market. She is also turning her attention now to alternative textiles which is at the beginning of its ability to meet demand.

Ann is the Co-Founder and Partner of the investment company OrangeGaia. Being a member of PYM, and before that Pymwymic, Toniic, and Glass Wall Syndicates, has been instrumental in her learning of being able to live her life closer to her values.
