Annemarie lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, and is the parent of two children. Her daughter Brittany is a person who stutters. After attending her first NSA conference in 2013, Annemarie returned to Charlotte and felt compelled to raise awareness and support for families of children and teens who stutter. As a result, Annemarie founded the Charlotte, North Carolina NSA Family Chapter which she co-leads with her son, Seth. Shortly after starting the Family Chapter, Annemarie created NSA Carolina Day where each year, NSA chapter members, their family and friends from North and South Carolina can come together for a day of fellowship, fun, and celebration. Annemarie is truly passionate about families, stuttering advocacy and NSA community outreach.
