We are grateful to have a grant-writing dream team at Sweet Cheeks. Ann joined Claire on the grant team late last year and has been helping keep us organized and on track and within character count limits ever since. She brings lots of experience with writing multi-million dollar RFPs in the corporate world and we’re happy to have her expertise bringing in more money for clean diapers.

Sweet Cheeks title: Grant Writer
Why are you excited to be a part of the Sweet Cheeks Team? Making a difference to the lives of Cincinnati’s smallest residents is not only exciting, but needed. So often our efforts to help others is haphazard, but with Sweet Cheeks, I know that the efforts of many talented people are coming together to make a true difference. While our daily activities may seem segregated and small, together, we are truly changing lives – and that is very exciting!
Tell us about your kid(s): I have two little monsters who keep my life interesting and give me the best reason to wake up each day. Dominic (2.5 years old) is inquisitive, sweet, and gentle, and Allison (18 months old) is the opposite – a crazy girl at heart, she’s the wild one that keeps us all on our toes!
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? Anywhere with a beach! Preferably in one of those huts over the clear blue water that serves ice cold beer.
What are you reading right now? I am perpetually re-reading the Harry Potter series when I don’t have time to get into a new novel.
If you had one extra hour of free time a day, how would you use it? Reading! I never have enough time to read as much as I’d like.
If there were a holiday in your honor what would it celebrate? Manatees, pancakes, and an empathetic ear.
