When she’s not traveling, Ann enjoys her time at home on the shores of a lake in Minnesota. Business or marketing topic to give actionable strategies/tips for listeners: Seriously no idea what to call it (yet), but I can have it firmed up by the time we connect. ... something along the lines of finding a problem and solving it... the problem I saw was this: The adoptee’s voice and experiences are often missing, exploited, or inaccurately portrayed by the media.

Depending on when you’ll be airing this episode, I may be able to offer a special to your listeners — we can discuss timing and availability.
