Her experience as a Dietitian at Shiloh Medical Centre, KNUST hospital, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, Korle-bu Teaching Hospital and Tema General Hospital have given her practical experience in addition to her scholarly knowledge in the best dietetic practices, something she fully incorporates into her business.

Even though access to raw materials has become a challenge due to the state of the world right now,  she does not compromise on quality and manages to still stay affordable by sourcing only the best, in both raw materials and packaging materials.

Anne has also worked as a Biology tutor at a number of schools including Ghana Christian International High School and Nouvel Community Academy. She was also a research assistant at the University of Ghana Medical School, Microbiology Department and later and Assistant Editor at Kapkork Publications. She combined all of these experiences and published a Biology textbook for secondary school learners.

That is not to say she has had a rosy journey to this point. In fact, Anne has tried her hands at a number of different things as well but was unfortunately unsuccessful and so had to let go of them. But one thing she considers her most significant achievement is being chosen to give a speech during the Ghana Trade and Investment Forum with South Africa during the 2nd Intra Africa Trade Fair 2020 in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. There, she attended a gala hosted by H.E Wamkele Mene, Secretary General of the AfCFTA.
