As a retired CSRS Personnel Management Specialist, Ann brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the team. Upon retiring from the government, Ann formed her own training company in 1996. She began teaching benefit seminars and now receives requests to teach all over the country. Her mastery of the CSRS/FERS benefits has played a vital role in unraveling some of the toughest benefit questions and circumstances.
Ann holds an MBA from Gonzaga University and the SPHR, Senior Professional in Human Resources, from the Society for Human Resources Management, SHRM. Ann is also our divorce specialist. She became involved in how federal benefits are handled in divorces when a particular employee became worth more dead than alive in retirement thanks to a misunderstanding by the courts on how survivor benefits worked. Since that time she has taught CLE classes for attorneys/mediators, testified as an expert witness, and works with individuals, as well as attorneys and their staffs to insure an understanding of how Federal Civilian Retirement benefits are different from the usual pension law, ERISA. When we run into complex HR and benefit issues that are beyond the norm, Ann is always the first call we make.
