Anne Sieker

Anne Sieker earned a bachelor degree in English Literature from the University of Georgia and a post-graduate degree in Secondary Education from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She taught high school Language Arts in Aurora and Douglas County for 15 years.

Three years ago, Anne’s oldest son was diagnosed with Bipolar I at the age of eleven. After navigating the frustrating waters of mental health, she decided to thoroughly educate herself on the issues of mental health and speak openly and passionately about her son’s diagnosis, the built-in stigma, the impact on her family, and most importantly, the hope for connection and understanding among those who have a mental health issue.
