Biographical Information:

 

 
Photo of Ambassador Annie Wargetz Annie Wargetz is a life-long space enthusiast who has a passion for getting the public and all those around her as excited about space exploration as she is. Annie speaks French and Spanish and also trained to be an opera singer in high school. After graduating in the top 10% of her high school class, Annie Wargetz pursued an undergraduate degree from the University of Houston in Communications. She focused on public relations and advertising, and also earned a minor in mathematics. After graduating from UH, she spent more than 8 years in the software industry teaching both in the classroom and online. She learned early on in her career that she was most comfortable when she was teaching others. In fact, she enjoys public speaking so much that she does it as often as she can. During a rough time in her life, she took the opportunity to leave everything she had behind and go for her dreams: she packed up and moved across the country to earn a Master of Science in Space Studies. Upon graduation, Annie hopes to spend the rest of her life imparting the knowledge she has learned to the public, in hopes of inspiring the next Einstein or Sagan.
