- Originally from Lafayette Louisiana, Marie first arrived at Notre Dame three years ago as a graduate student earning her MFA in Design his past Spring. Prior to joining University Communications as designer on the Print team, Marie spent the summer in true Notre Dame form, by giving her time and talent to improve the lives of others. We are thrilled to have someone of Marie’s character and ability on our team.
In her own words:
“I went to Nepal as part of a program established by Ann-Marie Conrado, an industrial design professor at Notre Dame. Every year she takes three students to work with a handicraft producer in Kathmandu. During the course of the summer, we created designs for products that developed into lines to be sold to current and prospective buyers. It is a truly humbling experience to live so near the coy, majestic Himalayas. Even more awe-inspiring than the natural beauty that rolls through the countrysides of Nepal is the kindness and joy of her people. The amazing folks we lived with, worked with and befriended this summer are inspirations for living life with pure generosity and compassion. Plus, getting to see monkeys run around the streets like squirrels on Notre Dame’s campus is an experience unto itself!”
- Please join me in welcoming Marie to the division.
