Anne Marie Hoffman grew up in Atlanta playing every sport under the sun – Soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball, cross country and swimming. Passionate about being active and for being outdoors, she pursued studies and a career in biology. This took her to diverse locations such as Washington DC, Nicaragua and the Virgin Islands! Over the years, she has taught many environmental education classes to students, even teaching in Spanish in Nicaragua. She also led community and partnership efforts to improve water quality and natural resources in marine protected areas. She has a BA in Biology and an MS in Conservation Biology and speaks Spanish.
When in the Virgin Islands, Anne Marie founded the first ultimate frisbee team on St. Thomas and the ultimate frisbee Tri-Island Tournament. Currently, she volunteers with the Atlanta Botanical Garden, the Trust for Public Land and the Million Mile Greenway. In her spare time, you can find Anne Marie hiking, sailing or showing up to her niece’s classroom in full scuba gear to chat with 1st graders about marine biology,
Anne Marie is excited to share her passion for activity and learning with Playball students. She loves that kids love Playball!
