Ann Shepherd

While investigating the prior inhabitants of her Fernando Nelson home, this history lover unearthed stories of families that mirrored San Francisco development. She consulted real estate records, city directories, and news archives to establish timelines and identify previous owners. Serendipitous connections led to the most remarkable discoveries, including this photo of the home under construction in 1905.

By day, Ann Shepherd helps accelerate diversity in the corporate boardroom through the social venture Him For Her. By night, she trolls online archives and studies old maps to learn more about her adopted city.
