Hi, I'm Ann

…motivational psychologist, 20-year naval officer, and the founder of American Women In Business,™ a network for entrepreneurial women who are business owners, operators, and entrepreneurs…and those who want to be!

I’m also a happy wife & mom, seashore aficionado, and travel buff.

I write, speak, coach, and train on the topics of psychology, leadership, lifestyle, executive skills, and the entrepreneurial mindset.

Ann has a tremendous ability to capture her audience using real-life examples that relate to leadership situations. She is a high-energy professional, and thought-provoking motivational speaker. I wouldn’t hesitate to have her talk to a group of my leaders again.

Dr. Ann Vertel is a powerhouse of a woman. If I could grow up to be anything like her when I’m older, I would be honored!

I am Tim McCain owner and President of Photolynx Inc. We are a software company, that serves several hundred other small businesses. I went to an event that Dr. Vertel was the keynote speaker at – I was so moved by her presentation that I asked her to come and speak to my client base. 

Leading with confidence and compassion. I would highly recommend her. Her talk changed the way I work in my company!
