Anne works on climate change related issues in the Northern Rockies through a combination of collaborative, landscape-level adaptation projects and an intensive regional outreach campaign on the impacts of climate change, what it means for Montanans in their everyday lives, and the role of large landscape conservation and restoration in supporting ecosystem resilience. Both programs seek to identify the destructive impacts of climate change in the Northern Rockies and focus additional scientific analysis on TWS’ priority landscape in Montana, the Crown of the Continent. 

Prior to joining The Wilderness Society in 2009, Anne developed and carried out research and conservation projects on large carnivores, ungulates, primates and elephants throughout Africa and Asia after completing her Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2000. 

She is a member of the Working Dogs for Conservation Board of Directors, lives in Bozeman and spends much of her spare time hiking, camping and skiing throughout Montana with her husband Ron and their two dogs.
