Ann ZackSenior Business Advisor
Based in Chattanooga, Ann works with clients throughout South East and Middle Tennessee.
Startup Consulting
Meeting people from all walks of life was one of Ann’s favorite parts about spending more than 20 years as a newspaper writer and editor. Everyone has a story, and part of Ann’s mission at Pathway is finding out her clients’ stories so she can help them run successful and fulfilling businesses. She will be the first to tell you that she has made dozens – probably hundreds! —of mistakes and would love to share her experiences so your path to entrepreneurial happiness is smoother.
