Ann is an avid cyclist and art lover. She has most recently cycled in the Loire Valley, France and Valencia, Spain, but enjoys the trails and streets of Pittsburgh on most weekends. Her admiration for impressionist and modern art has been fostered by trips to the D’Orsay Museum and the Musee de l’Orangerie in Paris, Giverny France, the Prada Museum in Madrid, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, and the Marc Chagall Museum in Nice.
