TMT Board Member, Annie Zucker named 2021 "Nevada Woman to Watch" by Nevada Business Magazine

Truckee Meadows Tomorrow is thrilled to announce our very own Annie Zucker has just been named a 2021 "Woman to Watch" by Nevada Business Magazine.

Here is what has to say about his outstanding award,

"Over Nevada’s diverse business landscape stands a group of women who have served as mentors, change agents and influencers for their communities. These women have proven time and again that limits can be pushed and determination is essential to a successful career. The 2021 class of Women to Watch represent this classification of female business executive. They’ve stood through the waves of change in Nevada and have used challenges as growth opportunities.

The Women to Watch were chosen by a committee of judges who reviewed their histories, legacies, leadership and careers. These women have shared insights and advice in the following pages.

Congratulations to all of the Women to Watch. Nevada Business Magazine and City National Bank are proud to recognize your achievements and contributions." Read details of all the incredible women earning this award here.


Annie is a native Nevadan, born and raised in Reno. She attended Oregon State University where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, then went on to achieve certification in nonprofit management from the University of Nevada, Reno.

Her character traits and educational background are well-directed in her current position as Manager of Community Impact for Renown Health, the region’s largest non-profit healthcare network to which she has directed many years of energy and talent. Annie works closely with Wendy Damonte, Vice President of Advocacy and Community Partnership, strategically guiding the Community Development team to develop and maintain impactful relationships with local nonprofits. She also oversees Renown’s community benefit partner grants. In Fiscal Year 2019, Renown awarded $1 million to local organizations that advance programs to improve Washoe County health scores and bolster areas highlighted in the Community Health Needs Assessment.

Prior to her current position at Renown, Annie served as Executive Director of the

Sierra Arts Foundation, leading a small team to accomplish a big endeavor—building bridges between local artists and art groups to collaborate more effectively. She brought a wealth of business savvy to this role, having served just prior to that as a Development Specialist for the Renown Health

Foundation. There, she administered the Renown Healing Arts Program since the early 1990s, while she also coordinated internal and external fundraising communication campaigns.

During that time, Annie managed a cadre of more than 750 artists, musicians and volunteers who engaged with patients, performed for the public, maintained gardens and offered pet therapy to provide emotional support to patients and their families. Under her direction, the American Hospital Association listed the Healing Arts Program at Renown as a best practice in 2014. Annie knows first-hand about getting and staying healthy. Partly through diet and exercise, she has effectively managed diabetes for many years, and has been a volunteer and research advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation since she was a child. If not sharing her love of the arts and community with her husband and two young children, Cooper and Kinsley, they can be found outside hiking and biking the beautiful northern Nevada trails.

Health and Wellness” is one of TMT’s Quality of Life indicator categories. We wholeheartedly believe that having local health institutions represented on TMT’s board is critical. We hope you are as excited as we are to have Annie join us.
