Ann Medlock is Founder and Creative Director of the Giraffe Heroes Project. She's given major talks about courageous, compassionate service at colleges, conferences and events in the US, China, Singapore, and Russia. You can get an online look at a talk she gave to a women's gathering, and a TEDx talk (she's not wildly pleased with that one—it was her first no-notes talk).

She writes www.giraffe.org, the Project's email service "Heads Up," plus the Giraffe Heroes page on Facebook, and has written and/or edited all the materials in the Giraffe curriculum for K-12 classrooms.

Her background includes editing Viet Nam Presse in Saigon; freelance writing for magazines and corporations, and media consulting for Western Union, AT&T and the US Maritime Administration. She's been editor-in-chief of Children’s Express, a curriculum developer at Macmillan and Science Research Associates, speechwriter to the Aga Khan and ghost-writer to US politicians.

As an English major, she earned a BA magna cum laude from the University of Maryland, and has published Arias, Riffs & Whispers, a book of poetry, and Outing the Mermaid, a novel.
