Anne Johansen worked as a Ward Secretary at The Boston Floating Hospital for Children and as a Medical Assistant in Denver, Colorado in the 1970s. Anne also held a number of volunteer positions in elementary schools and hospitals.

Recently, Anne lived in four different Boston area nursing homes in seven years before moving to an apartment in Quincy in May 2012 with the help of The Boston Center for Independent Living. Since then she has been an active volunteer with BCIL working on a variety of issues but with an emphasis on helping people leave nursing homes and return to living as independently as possible in their own homes.
