She commenced her arts-management career with the Victoria State Opera, and with Opera Australia as Company Manager, Manager of the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, and OzOpera Manager. Anne was appointed founding General Manager of Victorian Opera in 2006, working closely with the late Richard Gill AO to establish it.
Anne has also been Director of Communications and Fundraising and Deputy Executive Director at International Women’s Development Agency, General Manager of 3MBS Radio, and Deputy General Manager at the Australian National Academy of Music.
