Anne Hess has been a tireless supporter of the bilingual mission of GISSV in a variety of roles, including the PA and now Board, since her children started in 2005.
Anne's family does not speak German, but you would never know from speaking with her daughter and son. GISSV has given her children the gift of being prepared for a global world through language.
Anne received her Bachelor of Human Environmental Sciences from the University of Missouri at Columbia. She has worked in retail management, IT services marketing, training, and human resources. Currently, Anne is responsible for communications, project management and volunteer relations at a local non-profit. She puts all of these skills to use in her Board role.
