Maryanne has been in professional services marketing for more than 15 years, starting at an international law firm where her desire for fostering team work took shape as a member of growing 40-member marketing team. When she moved to a boutique law firm to serve as its first marketing director, she was instrumental in orchestrating the firm’s honorary mention on Crain’s Chicago Business’ annual Best Places to Work.

Maryanne earned her bachelor’s degree in public relations with a specialty in political science. During college, she spent nearly a year interning on Capitol Hill with the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. One of her first jobs was golf caddying, which paid off when she was awarded full tuition for Marquette University on the Chick Evans Scholarship. Beyond work, she devotes her time to being a wife and a mother of two boys and two dogs. This means juggling her career and her family is an every day priority and why she is committed to helping workplaces make this more manageable for their employees.
