Ann Marie Valentine

Senior Program Officer

Annie is the IWMF’s Senior Program Officer, responsible for managing the IWMF’s grant opportunities, overseeing the Emergency Fund, and implementing the organization’s initiatives in Africa’s Great Lakes Region. She believes everyone should #CheckYourBylines and that diverse women should be quoted more, assigned more, commissioned more, photographed more, paid more, awarded more, and hired more. When not asking where all the women are, you can find her practicing some self-care by hiking or camping somewhere along the east coast with her husband and her dog Thor.

Annie joined the IWMF in 2012 as a program assistant. She has worked on fellowship programs in Western Sahara, Morocco, Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, and Colombia. She has a background in experiential education and holds a joint bachelor’s degree in political science and religious studies from Gettysburg College.
