Ann Monks was appointed a Trustee of St Elizabeth Hospice in December 2022. Previously, she had served on the Board of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices for nine years. As with many people in Suffolk, Ann has a personal connection with St Elizabeth Hospice. Her husband passed away peacefully at the hospice while under the charity’s compassionate care.
Ann’s career has seen her work across professional practices and financial services in business development and marketing. She trained at KPMG and was Marketing Partner at Smith & Williamson, where she worked for 20 years.
Since retiring in 2014, Ann has continued to offer freelance marketing services and is involved in many activities in her local community.
In addition to walking her dog and enjoying the beautiful Suffolk countryside, Ann is a keen supporter of the arts and is a member of the Royal Over-Seas League - which promotes collaboration across the Commonwealth via education and arts programmes. She also enjoys weekly tap dancing classes with other likeminded tappers!
