Ann Bowes

Ann was born and raised in New Orleans. She received her Bachelor of Arts from The University of New Orleans (UNO) in 1989, where she majored in anthropology. After graduating, Ann, over the years, continued taking courses at UNO that were of interest to her, including courses in biology, computer science, and physics. In 2002, Ann graduated from the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University with a Juris Doctor and Bachelor of Civil Law.
After graduating from law school, Ann sought opportunities that allowed her to further develop her legal research and writing skills, including working at the Louisiana Supreme Court in the years immediately following Hurricane Katrina.
In addition to her legal endeavors, Ann is a pilot who holds Airline Transport Pilot, Flight Instructor, and Ground Instructor certificates, as well as eight type ratings in a variety of aircraft. Ann has also worked as an airline pilot, a charter pilot, a flight instructor, and an FAA Aviation Safety Inspector.
Ann is licensed to practice law in the states of Louisiana and Florida, in addition to being admitted to practice before the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, United States District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana, United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, and United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Ann lives in Metairie, LA, with her husband David (who is a Professor of economics) and her daughter Bay (who is an aspiring zookeeper and veterinarian). In her free time, Ann enjoys having fun with her family -- going to the Audubon Zoo, watching anything and everything ‘Star Wars,’ playing Laser Tag, and riding the Ladybug Roller Coaster at City Park.
