Marianne joined the Tap Team in 1996 as a Landsports Instructor and Sub Senior Bunk Counselor. After earning her Bachelor’s degree and playing on the women's NCAA basketball team at St. Mary’s University in Minnesota, Marianne continued on to earn her Master’s of Social Work (MSW) from the University of Illinois at Chicago. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Marianne has extensive experience working with all types of families.
As a parent herself, Marianne also knows what the camp experience is like from a parent’s perspective. She understands the challenge of finding the perfect camp for your child, as well as the importance of receiving consistent communication from your child’s camp—both before camp begins and throughout the summer. Her son attended a local Maine boys camp and also became a camp counselor. Marianne enjoys the opportunity to not only support campers in the bunk, but to "tap" into her experience coaching junior high and high school sports by running the occasional basketball class at camp.Email Marianne
