In the depths of a global recession, Anne's unyielding spirit carried her across the globe to New York., where she enriched her skills, working hands-on in a creative workshops with design pioneer Gaetano Pesce. Subsequently, she further honed her skills alongside the modernist architects of Smith-Miller + Hawkinson. Her unique career trajectory then took her to Europe, where she spent six enriching years in London, Oxford, and France. After her time abroad, Anne, having great admiration for the acclaimed architect Allan Powell, embraced the opportunity to work under his guidance. There, her influential role as a Senior Architect spanned a fruitful six-year period, during which she spearheaded multiple projects that achieved esteemed recognition and awards.
