ANFT Staff

Carin Cannell

Communication Manager

Carin is an Arizona native and grew up outdoors in nature. Her journey in life has taken her around the world several times, but her recent relocation to back to central Arizona is both permanent and very welcome as she and her partner are both fresh air addicts.  

After 25+ years in database development, software implementation, and IT management, life decided to give her lemons in the form of a chronic illness diagnosis. Opting instead for lemonade, she decided to use the downtime to go back to school and forge a new path for her career. Thus, after wrapping up her long-abandoned undergrad studies in Business, she went on to pursue a Master’s in Communication with dual emphasis in Corporate and Nonprofit Communication and Public and Media Relations and she is very pleased to be in a position now that will leverage her entire skill set.


In her words: She is very excited to join the ANFT staff and be part of such a diverse, dynamic team dedicated to making the world a better place, one relationship at a time.
