She has served the Discalced Carmelite Secular Order in numerous capacities, including as national president and as a member of the O.C.D.S. National Council.

Until her recent retirement, Annette worked as a doctor, specializing in child and adolescent psychiatry. She gained an additional qualification in psychoanalytical psychotherapy and has trained in spiritual direction.
