Anne Vesery has been with Mt. Pleasant School of  Performing Arts and its resident dance company since its inception in 2000.  Prior to retiring to Mt. Pleasant with her husband Rene’ (scenary designer and creator for MPPAC), she worked as a Registered Nurse with a OB/Gyn doc for 8 years and before that as a Labor and Delivery Room nurse at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ.  That is definitely a far cry from what she is doing now as Business Manager and Production Coordinator.  She is the glue that holds the business end of MPSPA and MPPAC together.  Can’t live without her.
