Ann spent the first six years of her career as a CPA at Deloitte Tax LLP in Cincinnati and Chicago, serving clients in the real estate industry. She nurtures her passion for travel whenever she has free time, and spent time living in India while working at Deloitte. She now works with her family's wholesale beer business, and loves getting to work with people who embody the entrepreneurial spirit and also spend time giving back to the community. She is looking forward to exploring a new culture, surrounding herself with entrepreneurs, and learning more about development work in Tanzania. She's also excited to tell all of her friends and family about Kiva!
