Ann Eisenberg has been the Executive Director at Palm Beach School for Autism since 2007. She
earned a Bachelor of Science in Communications and Child and Family Studies from Syracuse
University and a Master’s Degree in Nonprofit Management from Regis University.
Ann was introduced to the field of Autism when her own child was diagnosed at the age of 18
months and she could not imagine doing anything else. Ann says, “I have lived in Florida for over 30
years and began working in the field of disabilities in 1994. I have worked at the state and the county
level advocating for families seeking services and programs for their child with a disability.”
Ann created a brand new department focusing on social and recreational programming for a local
community center for 7 years which expanded to other community centers in Palm Beach County.
The Palm Beach School for Autism was born in 1996 because of the lack of services for children
with autism in the public school system. “I am proud of how far our school has come with regards to
the quality of programming, teaching staff, and operations of our charter school.”
More recently Ann became a John Maxwell Certified Trainer focusing on speaking and leading
workshops on effective communication, building strong teams, and how to lead from within. Ann is
completing her training to be certified as a professional coach working with leaders from the
educational and nonprofit arenas to help them reach their greatest potential.
In her free time, Ann enjoys hiking, paddle boarding, traveling, and a great book!
