Welcome Anne Sherman ’94!

Anne Sherman ’94 recently joined our office as associate director of gift planning and we are excited to “virtually” introduce you to her.  Although she is new to our office, she is definitely not new to Duke.  Anne received her undergraduate degree from Duke and has spent 9 years working at the Duke Law School.  And, yes, she is a fan of Duke basketball and football.  Read on to learn more about Anne…

Anne works with donors to identify charitable giving opportunities that benefit the university and meet donor’s personal and financial goals.  She particularly enjoys working with members of the Duke community who value the university and the Duke experience as much as she has.

Anne is an alumna of Trinity College of Arts & Sciences at Duke University, where she was also a varsity cheerleader from 1991-1994. Anne and her husband, who is a double-Duke alumnus, enjoy cheering on the Blue Devils with their two daughters at Cameron and Wallace Wade.

Anne earned her law degree from the University of Chicago Law School, and worked as an assistant director of the College Fund at Chicago.  After graduating from law school, Anne practiced employee benefits law at firms in Chicago and Raleigh, where she advised clients about the implications of the Tax Code and ERISA as they related to their employee benefit plans.  Immediately prior to joining the gift planning team, Anne served as the assistant dean of academic advising at Duke Law.

When she’s not at work, Anne:

  • Enjoys fitness, spending time with her middle-school aged daughters and her husband, whom she met on her freshman hall at Duke, and reading good books.
  • Volunteers on the Duke Presbyterian Campus Ministry board.

If you’d like to contact Anne you may reach her by calling (919) 681-6750 or by email at anne.sherman@duke.edu.
