Ann Dushane

Ann came to the Cathedral as a volunteer with the Maison de Tilleuls (MdT) computer program in 2010, which she then directed for 4 years. In January 2011, with the sudden death of her Catholic dad, Ann sought the comfort of the Clergy and the Choir and the community offered by the Cathedral. She joined the Mission & Outreach Committee in 2013 and served as co-secretary (2014-16). At the end of the MdT computer program in 2016, Ann took on a new program, Hampaté Bâ School in Niger, in honor of her passion for sub-Saharan Africa. Since Sept 2016, she took over Friday Mission Lunch from her “twin” Judy Nicault. Ann is an Usher and Welcomer. She volunteered at the front desk last fall and is working with the Dean and the Jr Warden on the Strategic Plan, both opportunities to increase her knowledge of all the activities at the Cathedral.

Ann has a diverse professional background primarily in IT and HR. She is currently Director of Implementation for HR outsourcing programs and came to France in 2006 as an IT auditor. She took a “sabbatical” to work in Executive Education for 4 years designing and running custom mini-MBA and HR-degree programs. Ann has lived in 9 states in the US, was raised Catholic and Episcopalian, and finally became a confirmed Episcopalian in 2012 at the Cathedral.
