Anne has been an important part of JOMP for 20 years. In addition to her own music lessons, her four sons participated in lessons and ensembles at JOMP and now all four of her grandchildren are also involved. Anne began helping JOMP as a parent volunteer during which time she helped as the night-time receptionist. Her deep commitment to JOMP led her to become a part of the staff in increasing positions of responsibility. Today she is the Director of Operations and helps to keep JOMP running smoothly. Anne’s deep commitment to Financial Aid is shown through the Timothy J. Houston Fund, a memorial fund set up in honor of her son Tim. Funds raised help to ensure that others in the Worcester community have access to music classes and lessons that helped to enrich Tim’s life.
