About Ann Waters

Hello there! My name is Ann Waters, and I graduated from William & Mary with a B.A. in History and a minor in Anthropology. While on campus, I played club volleyball and was a member of the Spotswood Society, a group of student volunteers who lead tours of the Sir Christopher Wren Building. I also completed the NIAHD Collegiate Program in Early American History, Material Culture, and Museum Studies. In addition to history, I really enjoy learning about Italian language and culture, and I studied abroad in Florence during the summer of my junior year.

Now that I'm an alumna of the college, I hope to pursue a career in public history or museum studies. I've made some great memories at William & Mary, and I'm looking forward to sharing these experiences with you!
