Anne Gimpl

Anne has been part of Friends of Highland Arts since its inception. Working as a high school guidance counselor, Anne has observed that despite our rich artistic and cultural backdrop of St. Paul, our schools consistently lack funding for arts education. Anne has seen up close the difference a vibrant arts curriculum makes on the holistic education of a student and builds an environment where all students belong.  Anne looks forward to a day when FHA helps create a venue in our broader Highland Park community for an arts and recreation center to showcase the talents of our neighbors and bring people together

When not working or volunteering for FHA, she spends her free time  with friends, practicing gentle yoga and going for long bike rides with her husband. Additionally, Anne loves dogs and is continually entertained by her family’s dog Buster.
