Ann was introduced to the Hallelujah Diet in 1996 when she met Reverend Malkmus in a small church in the Midwest. At the time, she was in graduate school, suffering from IBS and fibromyalgia and attending to her young daughter who was suffering from asthma and rheumatoid arthritis. After changing their diet, they found incredible results and have enjoyed great health.
This sparked a new interest in Ann and while she completed her Master’s degree in Communication from the University of Dubuque in Iowa and went on to teach and become Academic Dean of an Engineering Technical College, she never forgot her passion of health and wellness.
As her children entered college, she attended Hallelujah Acres to become a Health Minister, never realizing that step would forever change her life. Within a year, she was overseeing and managing all the Health Ministers and completely revised the Health Minister Training. She worked with Paul to create curriculum for the Online Health Minister Training that has allowed people from all over the world to be trained to spread the great message of hope and healing.
She has conducted training programs in Nigeria, Africa, Toronto, Canada and across the United States and is planning even more trainings throughout the world. A powerful speaker and motivator, Ann can captivate an audience and convince them that their lives can change forever with simple, meaningful steps.
As the Chief of Education, Ann is responsible for ensuring that the Hallelujah Diet message is presented in easy, practical and useful ways so people can incorporate the principals and experience renewed, vibrant health.
Ann is also a dedicated advocate of women’s issues of health and wellness and is committed to helping women find within them the greatest physical and emotional health no matter what season of life they happen to be in.
