BVVH is a special place for Anne. She first came to the practice as a client in 1990 with a lovely Lurcher named Marble with a badly fractured hind leg. The case was complicated and required many progress exams where she and Dr. Moss became very fond of each other. That was the beginning of what has turned out to be a wonderful life together. They were married in 1994, and she took on the job as Practice Manager in 1995.
Anne grew up living on her family’s farm in Bucks County, where she developed interests in horses and horticulture. She has pursued her plant passions by completing two horticultural certificate programs and floral design courses at Longwood Gardens. She has enjoyed working in garden centers and, with local florists in the past.
Horses have been a life-long joy for Anne and she is a foxhunting, dressage, and side saddle enthusiast. She currently rides a beautiful 16 year old Hanoverian mare named Goodness Grace. They have competed locally through Prix St. George level dressage. Grace had a foal named Flying Squirrel aka ‘Rocky’ in May 2012. She and Dr. Moss have enjoyed raising and training him together. Rocky is currently going under saddle nicely and learning to jump.
She is a United States Pony Club (USPC) graduate “A” and a USPC National Examiner, a certified side saddle instructor with the American Riding Instructor’s Association, International Side Saddle Organization (ISSO) and Side Saddle Association (SSA), she holds United States Equestrian Federation ‘r’ Dressage Judge and Western Dressage ‘R’ licenses. She enjoys volunteering on the USDF Historical and Freestyle Committees, Dressage at Devon Committee, running dressage judge training programs for DVCTA, and teaching knitting for After the Bell (an after school program for children at the Kennett Square Middle School).
In her spare time she enjoys historical reenacting, open hearth cooking and baking, gardening, water gardens and pottery.
She and Dr. Moss are empty nesters and live with their canine children Pepper, Sophie and Tristan and a koi pond, a flock of hens and occasional pig.
