Annie Celotto | Founder & Principal
Annie is the Founder and Principal of Alice Paul Group, but she prefers to be called 'Aunt' by her precious nieces. Annie started Alice Paul Group, because like Alice Paul, Annie believes that principles never change, but tactics must in order to effect change. Unlike Alice Paul, though, Annie does not consider herself a sports enthusiast... well, except for the occasional game of tennis. But like Alice Paul, Annie believes that it takes a concerted effort by a group of people - grassroots - in order to change the world. After over 10 years of campaign organizing, fundraising and developing targeted political messaging, Annie decided to take those skills and lend them to non-profits. And although she takes her work very seriously, she does not take herself very seriously. Like her life-long hero, Saint Mother Teresa, she thinks that simple acts - making someone smile or laugh - make the profoundest impact on an individual's life, which is why she believes in utilizing new media to do just that. Annie would live in her local Eucharistic Adoration chapel if she knew she could get away with it. And at the same time, she prefers gin and scotch to normal "girly" beverages. Annie believes that there is nothing more important than seeing the dignity in every person and she is humbled that she gets to wake up every day and help the world to see that dignity through the client work that APG does. She is grateful.
