    Annie attended St. Louis University School of Law as an 1843 Scholar (full tuition scholarship). While in law school, she was as a Faculty Fellow for two Distinguished Professors of Health Law. She served as an intern to the Honorable Chief Judge G. Patrick Murphy, United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois, and at Legal Services of Eastern Missouri. She received Academic Excellence Awards for receiving the highest grades in Health Law and Income Tax of Trusts and Estates.

    Prior to attending law school, Annie was a scientific research assistant at a renowned not-for-profit biomedical research facility. She worked with other scientists on long-term, federally funded projects using non-human primate models to investigate the genetic, hormonal, and environmental factors that contribute to temperament/mental health, stress, social functioning, and maternal behavior.
