Anne has taught a number of units in tourism, specializing in Sustainable Tourism, Interpretation, International Issues in Tourism and Tourism Marketing. She has also taught both undergraduate and postgraduate units at other universities, including the University of Queensland and the University of Northern British Columbia.
Anne returned to the University of Tasmania in 2011. Previously she has worked and studies at the University of Queensland and the University of Northern British Columbia. She has also worked as a tourism consulted, through a business which she established in 2007. In 2000 Anne was the recipient of the Harry Holgate Fellowship in 2000 and since then she has been invited to give key note speeches on Drive Tourism and Recreational Vehicle Tourism throughout Canada and Australia. In both countries, she has been successful at attracting research money for projects which seek to link tourism industry problems with academic research. She is member of CAUTHE, and in 2009 was invited to be a Research Affiliate for the Laboratory for Intelligent Systems in Tourism (LIST). Since returning to Australia Anne has been an active referee for journals such as the Journal of Sustainable Tourism, Tourism Geographies, and Journal of Tourism and Cultural Change.
Anne's research activities cover a range of areas in tourism, including sustainable tourism issues, community involvement in tourism, interpretation and more recently the drive tourism and the recreational vehicle user market. Currently Anne is researching travelers as neo-tribes and the motivations, behaviors and impacts of recreational vehicle users in Australia. This is a continuation of a highly successful and collaborative research project which she conducted in Canada. She is also involved in research which is exploring the travel habits of international students in Australia.
Anne also maintains an interest in community involvement in tourism decision making and qualitative research methodologies and has published in these realms, specifically on grounded theory and stakeholder participation and management.
She has also supervised the research of a number of research higher degree students and is interested in considering PHD candidates, especially those with an interest in travel behavior, drive tourism stakeholder management or recreational vehicle use.
