She took the central stage behind the podium at the Rotunda inside Kitchener City Hall. She used her humor, spontaneity and honesty to capture the attention of more than 200 women and 6 men attending the 5th Waterloo Region Small Business Centre’s event to celebrate the International Women. Corporita Magazine had a great opportunity to interview Anne and get to know her on the personal level as well as the professional level.

Q. How do you measure your success?

I don’t have a way of doing that, unfortunately! I think there are moments where I’ll look at the cool things I’ve done and I’ll acknowledge them to myself or with close friends if we’re talking about work, but for the most part, I’m better at looking forward than I am at looking around. At least, when it comes to my own life.

Q- What makes you fulfilled and brings you satisfaction on both the professional and personal levels?

I think keeping close friends and family close is the only way to enjoy anything that’s happening. But professionally, I don’t think I’ll ever really be fulfilled — which is a common theme in the arts, I think. Ultimately, you just want to keep moving and pushing and trying new things, so aside from the satisfaction of achieving something, it’s “onto the next” very quickly.

    “What kinds of mental dividends does this career yield?” What a great question! Wish I could have seen the Woman’s Day talk. Anne is a powerhouse wrapped up in cheer.
