A 2012 Fulbright Scholar, Anne has taught at the Jazeps Vitols Latvian Academy of Music in Riga, Latvia, the University of Southern California, Occidental College and Idyllwild Arts Academy, an arts-focused boarding high school. She is an international clinician and the author of JAZZ VOCAL TECHNIQUES (JazzMediaPress 2003).

Her columns, essays, reviews and interviews have appeared in Windplayer, Billboard Live, Jazz Notes, Tone Audio, All About Jazz - Los Angeles and RealTalkLA. She writes a biweekly column for Concord Music Group. Her original recordings can be heard on the FX series, The Shield. At home in Los Angeles, she is an active participant in the club and theater scenes, serving as musical director for plays and revues and performing with her quartet. SATURDAY MORNING, her previous release, is available on Cdbaby.com, Itunes and Amazon. Her latest recording, SEALED WITH A KISS, is distributed by Naxos and is available for sale at the standard outlets in both regular and high def formats.
