Annette is one of America's leading fragrance authorities and futurists. She was appointed President of the Fragrance Foundation in 1993, after serving for 32 years as Executive Director. In 2003, the Board named her President Emeritus. 

Annette developed and opened the country's first fragrance museum currently housed in the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in L.A. Annette conceived The Fragrance Foundation's Annual "FiFi" Awards, the Oscars of the fragrance industry 36 years ago. She established a Bachelor of Science Degree in Cosmetics/Fragrance Marketing at FIT and helped develop a Masters Degree program. 

In 2018, Annette launched her memoir, “Spritzing to Success- with the woman who brought an industry to its senses” tracing a 40-year career with The Fragrance Foundation during which time she helped turn a small, half a million dollar fragrance industry into the over four billion dollar U.S. business it is today. “Spritzing to Success” has been unanimously voted “2019 Fragrance Book of the Year”  by the Perfumed Plume Awards Jury.

She previously co-authored (with Linda Dyett) the first historical exploration of jewelry which held fragrance, "Secrets of Aromatic Jewelry" (Flammarion, France).
