Anne Skillen recently joined the Marshall, Parker & Weber team as an Estate Administration Case Manager in our Williamsport office. Although born in Brooklyn New York, Anne moved at a very young age and was raised in New Jersey. She moved to the Williamsport area to marry her husband Bob in 2014. Mr. Skillen has been working at Lonza for eighteen years as a Research Chemist. They reside in Montoursville.
In 1992 Anne earned her Associates degree in Accounting from Morris County College. She spent 13 years doing corporate accounting for Chubb Insurance Company, and then moved on to financial planning and preparing personal tax returns.
Anne is close with her family and returns to New Jersey at least twice a month to visit. She grew up with three brothers, and as the only girl quickly learned how to “hold her own.” Anne’s father, who is now retired, worked as an Engineer for Johnson & Johnson for over 30 years. Her mother is “still” working at the Township Library where she’s been employed for 40 years. Anne’s 27 year old son, Lenny, is a Civil Engineer in New Jersey.
Anne’s mother Angela is one of the biggest Elvis Presley fans walking the earth. Anne grew up listening to Elvis music “every” day of her childhood. Anne says, “On a nice spring day, walking home from school, my brothers and I could tell what kind of mood my Mom was in by her choice of the Elvis album we heard playing through the screen door.” Anne’s Mom is such a huge fan….Anne is honored to be able to say that she herself saw Elvis perform live twice in her lifetime! She was young, but will forever remember in particular the reaction he caused from his fans.
Anne and her family have been vacationing at the same place, the same week, for 43 years now. Anne states, “When we were young my parents would bring our grandparents along with my brothers and me every year. All of us continued to go year after year, and now my parents ARE “the Grandparents.” We bring all of “our” children, and it has become a generational tradition that I absolutely cherish! We are so blessed!”
