Ann-2016

By Pat Nowak

Ann has been a financial advisor for 40 years, helping generations of families create, manage and transfer their wealth. A founding member of the ClearView Group at Morgan Stanley, Ann graduated from Smith College in 1975, magna cum laude earning Phi Beta Kappa honors.  She spent her junior year in Paris and speaks French fluently.

Ann grew up on a farm in southeastern Ohio and, with her strong Midwestern values, has served the larger community by being active with many nonprofits, both locally and nationally.

Where do you call home? Our family farm in Noble County, SE Ohio

What was your first job? Being a lifeguard at the Happy Time Pool in Caldwell, Ohio at age 14.

What health or lifestyle tips do you support? We all need our sleep! And lifting weights makes you feel invincible.

Your biggest self-indulgence? Reading when I should be organizing at home…

I have always wanted to …? Sublet an apartment in NYC for a couple of months and see every show on Broadway. Or go around the world and visit all my friends that I don’t get to see that often.

What trait do you admire in others? Patience (not my strong suit)

Something most people don’t know about you? I used to show steers in 4-H at the Noble County Fair. (Mine were usually the wildest since I didn’t have the patience to train them for the show ring!)

Words you live by? Say yes whenever you can.

Your proudest accomplishment? My two kind and caring sons, Ford and Deuce Bennett.

Person you most respect? Gloria Steinem, for her constant struggle for women’s full equality.
