Our Staff -
Executive Director - Marie Kurz
Marie has blessed our program over the past 3 years as our Team Coach and has helped our families set goals, learn about how to use new resources and lean into their supportive allies along their journey. Her vast skillset and big heart for our families and A Thrive Community, make her the perfect fit to carry the mantle forward as we begin a new journey forward. Marie is the mother of 3 adult sons and a proud grandmother to several grandchildren who are the loves of her life. Marie was a strong business leader coming out of college, majoring in business, but for the past dozen years has followed her passion for service to those who need a hand up along their journey in our community. She has worked with Catholic Charities and Saint Anthony Family Shelter before discovering A Thrive Community. She approaches life through a deep faith and prayerfully approaches every situation with Grace and encouragement.
