She serves as Adjunct Professor at the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania and teaches at the Wharton School’s Aresty Institute of Executive Education. Annie is the founder of the Teleos Leadership Institute, a consultancy serving managers and leaders of businesses and not-for-profits all over the world. She received her doctorate in

Her life’s work has been to support people in reaching their full potential as employees, leaders, and people as they contribute to their families, organizations, and communities. As she puts it, “My mission is to, one by one, with leader after leader, help others embrace the hope that carried me through my life. If I can help people experience hope and find their dreams, and give them the power to realize them, I will consider my life worthwhile.”
