Meet Anne the personality and powerhouse behind Mervenne & Company.
I’m Anne and I feel incredibly blessed to love what I do and the people I serve and work with each and every day.
On any given day, I am either wearing my Mervenne & Company public affairs and advocacy hat for a client, working with the latest class at The Michigan Political Leadership Program at Michigan State University to develop more able and politically savvy public sector leaders or spreading my passion for international relations and travel especially to Morocco a country I fell in love with years ago. (Little did I know when I first toured Morocco, I would find myself in the travel business.)
My years in public service including working directly for the Governor of Michigan for 12 years, convinced me that those of us who work in the political and public arena are in the serve the people business and that we all need an advocate in our corner from time to time to solve a problem, right an injustice, prevent an unintended consequence, do the right thing or make the world or our corner of it a better place.
Regardless of the hat I’m wearing, that is what I try to do every day – do the right thing and make the world a better a place for my clients, my leadership students or my fellow travelers to Morocco or in life.
Let me know how Mervenne & Company can serve you.
