Anne RussellAdams and Reese Counsel Anne Russell is featured in the September 2023 NFocus special edition on “Model Behavior” – celebrating Nashville’s Top 10 Outstanding Philanthropists.

“In searching for female philanthropists who exemplify model behavior, NFocus had to look no further than Nashville native Anne Russell. In psychology, we learn that a person functions as a model for others by exhibiting the specific behavior that needs to be imitated. One look at Anne’s résumé and it is evident she has spent a lifetime perfecting a leadership style that others can only hope to imitate.”

Russell has held leadership roles in the United Way of Middle Tennessee and its Alexis de Tocqueville Society Campaign, Nashville Symphony, Ensworth School, and Harpeth Hall. She is co-founder of the Nashville Conflict Resolution Center, an alumna of Leadership Nashville.

“Lawyers should be leaders in their community,” said Russell. “As a Nashville native, I strive to make the most of my civic contribution by donating my time, knowledge, and resources to deserving organizations and by teaching and mentoring the next generation.”
