Anne Morris Reid has over a decade of experience in the federal government and non-profit sector.  Most recently, Anne was Senator Elizabeth Warren’s Chief of Staff, where she managed 50 full-time staff and oversaw Senate office functions in Washington, DC, and Massachusetts.

From 2017 to 2018, Anne was Chief Strategy Officer for Vision To Learn where she spearheaded the launches of new mobile vision services programs in Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Pittsburgh public schools.  Anne’s non-profit experience also includes work at the National Association of Community Health Centers (2010-2011). 

During the Obama Administration (2014-2017), Anne served as a Counselor to the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Sylvia Mathews Burwell, where she provided strategic advice to the Secretary and agency leaders on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Health Resources and Services Administration, and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration regulatory, legislative, public affairs, and budget matters.  While at HHS, Anne managed day-to-day evolving aspects of the HHS Zika virus response; coordinated several additional cross-departmental responses and initiatives, including biosafety and biosecurity and serious mental illness; and interfaced regularly with key federal partners, including the Domestic Policy Council, National Security Council, Office of Management and Budget, Office of National Drug Control Policy, and Office of Science and Technology Policy on these responses and initiatives.
