Annelise Kouns-Warburton

Class of 2015

From an early age Annelise Kouns-Warburton was inspired by her surroundings of history and built heritage living in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. Annelise pursued undergraduate studies in architecture at Florida International University and most recently completed graduate studies in historic preservation at Savannah College of Art and Design. She has worked in Europe and the Caribbean and also served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Jamaica. Although Annelise is originally from Florida, she retains her strong family ties to the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. She is very proud of her Latina roots and owes much of the cultivation of her passions, namely Caribbean cultural and heritage preservation, to her background and upbringing.
