When she was 20, Marly volunteered at a Special Olympics event with a college roommate whose uncle had Down syndrome and found the experience very rewarding. Years later, she jumped at the chance to join the Special Olympics New Jersey development team where she led the communication and marketing efforts for ten years.
She began to appreciate the potential research has to improve lives while working in product public relations for Eisai Pharmaceuticals where she co-chaired the Alzheimer’s Association Corporate Walk Committee. After moving MA, she consulted for a variety of nonprofits, educational publishers, and small business owners until she joined the LuMind RDS team in September 2016.
Outside of work, she enjoys weird stories, adventures in the kitchen, mixing Wagner with Reznor, exploring new environments and listening to people talk about their passions. She and her husband Michael, a like-minded nonprofit nerd and road-trip enthusiast, are busy raising their resilient, curious, and broadminded children, Sabina and Ryan.
