Anne is a graduate of Andover Newton Theological School in Boston. She is frequently a keynote speaker or music and worship leader for various local and regional conferences. She is on the board of Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center and spends a week as a chaplain at camp every summer. She also serves as a founding board member of The People Tree.
Anne writes a weekly column on religion that appears in the North Little Rock Times, The Sherwood Voice, The Jacksonville Patriot and the Maumelle Monitor.

The Anne Russ Award is given annually to the graduate of the Donaghey Scholars Program at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock who “most reminds us that this is supposed to be fun.”
Fun is a major theme for Anne, who believes in the opening words of the Westminster Shorter Catechism; that our goal in life is to glorify God and enjoy God forever.
