Her television credits include ER, Joey, NYPD Blue, Becker, Costello, Strong Medicine and The Disney Channel's That's So Raven.

Annie performed stand-up comedy at The Improv in Los Angeles following Jerry Seinfeld and has authored a book of short stories called "Where Would I Be Without Me?: Stories, Scenes, and Significant Others" reflecting her observations on love, life and relationships.
