Ann was born in a village 2 miles from Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina (place of alleged Marian apparitions since 1981) her family moved to the USA when she was 2 years old.  In the summer of 1981, she returned to her homeland and was a witness to the beginning days and months of Our Lady’s apparitions in Medjugorje, which profoundly changed her life.  In 1999, after many years of working in the field of Social Work, she was called by the Lord into ministry: leading pilgrimages to Medjugorje and other Catholic sites; interpreting for Medjugorje visionaries and priests throughout the United States and beyond; working extensively with Fr.
