Author of Bali Girl.
An inspirational story about a leap of
faith into spiritual awakening.


Card1The world was doubly blessed on January 8, 1977 when Anne and her twin sister were born. Being the youngest in a family of four children, she learned to be rough and tough. She didn’t mind getting dirty and loved competing in sports such as downhill skiing, basketball, and running track. Outside of sports, Anne was actively involved in her church youth group. It had been important to her parents to raise their children in a Christian home with a solid moral foundation. Soon after school in 1999, she moved to Southern California to take a job in the entertainment industry as a business manager. She got married in 2001. They were blessed eighteen months later with a son, at which time she decided to stay home and raise him. Unfortunately her marriage didn’t last long and she quickly found herself a divorced Christian mom. Knowing that she needed to make a future for them, she took a leap of faith and started her own accounting business that catered to professional athletes, entertainers, and business owners.

Anne quickly grew her business and settled in as a single mom while actively involved with her local church. Life was going exceptionally well for Anne until the day she heard the worst news of her life. Her dad, who had been married to her mom for forty-five years, had decided to take his own life. It was a devastating time for the family, but it brought them closer to one another and to God. The loss of her father had been a spiritual awakening; Anne realized that there was more to life than climbing the ladder of success.

While growing deeper in her faith, she felt called by God to go to Indonesia with her church. There was trepidation about leaving her son and business behind as a divorced Christian woman venturing off to Indonesia. It was God’s will because everything came together, not by coincidence but by God’s direction. Shortly after committing to go on the trip, she was drugged with GHB, known as a date rape drug. Instead of letting it affect her life, she powered through it and continued her plans to go to Indonesia. There are very few Christians in Bali, and being that it is predominantly Muslim, she wanted to share the Word of God, at whatever cost.

Anne had no idea that when she left for Indonesia in May of 2013 her life would forever change. She broke her back on a remote island, off the coast of Bali. So much for cliff diving in Bali! Thinking that she had fractured ribs, she waited two days before looking into the emergency care in Bali.  Thankfully she had friends who lived locally who researched the best helicopters in Bali and arranged for an evacuation off the island. She was airlifted by Air Bali and taken directly to the Siloam Hospital, the best hospital around. After her MRI, CT Scans, and x-rays, she was told that she should have paralysis in her legs and was lucky to be walking.

Once stabilized, she was flown back to the United States along with a medical escort. An ambulance took her directly from LAX to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Orange, California. Doctor Jeffrey Deckey performed a spinal fusion with a cage replacing her thoracic ten vertebrae with titanium metal. Recovery was long but successful, with the first three months being confined to a hospital bed and cast. It was during those three months that she felt compelled to write about her spiritual awakening.

Soon after the three-month benchmark, Anne started physical therapy with Martin Andrade at Core Performance in Newport Beach, California. She had been told that physical therapy after a spinal fusion with a cage would be tough, but she leaned on God to see her through. Within a short period of time, she was back to normal activities, including walking her dog.

Bali Girl

In the midst of everything, Anne managed to finish her book Bali Girl. She currently lives in Southern California with her son and continues to shine a light of hope wherever she goes. In August 2014, Anne started attending Saddleback Church and shortly after, joined the communications team which eventually led her to her ultimate calling with women. Anne co-lead the Women’s Ministry at the Newport Mesa campus before starting Saddleback Church’s first ever Single Mom’s Ministry, which has been going strong for over two years. Anne also taught CLASS 401 (Discovering My Life Mission) for Saddleback Church.
