Dr. Ann Skopek is an internist who has practiced primary care for the last 36 years. After completing her training at Yale New Haven Hospital she spent most of her career in the New Haven, CT area, actively participating in the Yale medical community while managing her own practice. She moved to Cape Cod in 2007 to work in a large primary care practice which she did until May of 2014. She currently works at Pleasant Bay Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
Dr. Skopek is married to Dr. Richard Peterson, a plant biochemist. They are the proud parents of 2 children–a daughter Kathryn, an artist, and a son Adam, a captain in the Massachusetts National Guard. Adam returned in July of 2013 from a second deployment to the Middle East to Afghanistan, where he served as company commander of the 181st Engineer Company.
As a military mom and active member of the Family Readiness Group for her son’s deployed unit, Dr. Skopek witnessed the tremendous sacrifices of our soldier heroes and their families. With her involvement with Operation Adopt A Soldier she has learned of the ongoing needs of military families and our veterans and is newly energized both with the prospects of helping those who have sacrificed so much for our country and by the generosity of members of our communities.
