Dr. Annie Wingate Spell
2017 Acadiana Steel Magnolia
As a successful Lafayette psychologist and new mother, Dr. Annie Wingate Spell received a shocking Hodgkin’s Lymphoma diagnosis in July of 2013. The former UL-Lafayette homecoming queen made the difficult, life-changing decision to pause her career while receiving cancer treatment, and today, she sees every day as a gift and opportunity to live more fully while volunteering her time for others.
Dr. Spell’s philanthropic efforts have benefitted organizations such as Hearts of Hope, Maddie’s Footprints, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, American Cancer Society, and the Lafayette General Foundation. She has volunteered for or served on the board of The Autism Society of Acadiana, Ballet Acadiana, The Family Circle of the Lafayette General Foundation, and Schools of the Scared Heart.
