Mary Anne Ansley
Touched by abuse and a birth defect, Mary Anne has now found a fertile soil through the caring ministry unto others who need to be lifted up. Mary Anne's journey is a story that took her from an inner hidden bondage to a slow walk through freedom's door. She spent many years working through her healing process and now for the past six years has been diligently involved in volunteer work with "Women in Crises" through a number of community agency's in the Peterborough, Ontario, Canada area. Mary Anne's work has involved public speaking engagements, committee work, workshops, seminars, community events and representing the YWCA in a number of facets. She is now in the mist of creating her own non-profit group called "Survivor's Give Hope" and is excited about where this new endeavour will lead her on her journey towards helping others to take the steps needed to new found freedom.
