Anne has interacted in a wide range of health care environments, including hospitals, independent and assisted living communities, long-term care, memory care and skilled nursing care facilities, foster care homes, residential care settings, and outpatient clinics in her career as a chaplain. She has served a variety of populations including veterans, those on hospice, the elderly, women of all ages, people in crisis, the bereaved and those going through life transitions.

Suggested in-services include:
Use of poetry as a common language to explore grief and loss.
Use of the labyrinth as a tool to process the life journey.
The art of compassionate communication and deep listening.
Respecting differing spiritual & religious views among residents and co-workers.
Discussion of veterans at end of life and helping those with moral injury and post-traumatic stress.
Developing rituals for honoring grief and transition in healthcare environments.
