Maryanne Dersch received her bachelor of journalism degree from Mizzou so long ago it makes her head hurt to think about it. She’s spent more than 18 years working in the nonprofit community relations biz and is thrilled to be at 501, where she can put all her nonprofit experience to use helping clients reach their goals.
Maryanne and her husband of 20 years, Jon Schmuke, adopted their three children, Patrick, AJ and Taylor, out of foster care. She recently served on the local board of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. She is an avid Rams and Missouri Tigers fan, and throws a great tailgate party. On the first Friday of the month, she can be found singing karaoke at local bars.
