A native of Western Mass, Annie Celdran honed her client services skills in San Francisco, California where she worked at Hanson Bridgett, LLP; a Bay Area law firm with a reputation for community engagement. At the firm she managed the Client Concierge and Office Services departments. One of the projects she is most proud of is the creativity she brought to their annual Food From the Bar fundraising campaign in support of the SF-Marin Food Bank. She also supported events that welcomed law students into the office for mock interviews, panel discussions and networking activities. With two small children, she convinced her husband to return with her to Western Mass where they settled in East Longmeadow.
In 2019 Annie joined New England Public Media where she was recently the New Voices Campaign Manager. At NEPM Annie communicated regularly with donors, visitors and volunteers. Annie worked closely with the President and COO and collaborated with the Marketing Department and Development Team on an ambitious new fundraising campaign.
Annie is thrilled to be combining her passion for supporting local arts and community outreach and looks forward to welcoming patrons and newcomers alike to the symphony. While she’s looking forward to traveling again, she has enjoyed her time at home during the pandemic by creating family theme nights, taking her dog on long walks and reading multiple children’s book series with her kids.
