A graduate of St. Bonaventure University and The Methodist Theological School of Ohio, Annette spent 10 years serving as a United Methodist pastor and learning what leads to a nonprofit's success or failure. After departing from the ministry, she owned and operated an event management firm for 5 years through which she met The Faine House family when they hired her to run their 2020 gala. She is as strategic in marketing and building a solid foundation of volunteers and donors, and as she is caring for youth and young adults. Having adopted a 17-year-old ten years ago, Annette knows what it takes to heal a traumatized young adult, build their confidence, and get them running on the path to independence. Annette's daughter, Jessica, graduated college because of Annette and her husband's support, was accepted into the United States Marine Corps Band, served 4 years in Japan, and is continuing her education at the University of Austin in Mechanical Engineering.
Our bold, new vision needs your support! Thank you for helping Central Florida's young adults!
