Successor to Paul Foster Case in Builders of the Adytum (B.O.T.A.), Davies served as Prolocutor General until her death in 1975. She expanded the curriculum of the school by amplifying and reworking Case's 'Esoteric Astrology' and by authoring the courses on 'Developing SuperSensory Powers,' 'Sexual Polarity,' 'Meditational Ascent of the Tree of Livingness,' and 'Qabalistic Doctrines of Rebirth.'

According to her B.O.T.A. obituary, Ann was born on October 28th, 1912, in Cleveland, Ohio.
