Mary Beth serves as the Florida Director for the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation and works out of the Naples, Florida, office. She is responsible for the Collier & Lee county areas of interest for the foundation and performs site visits, prepares evaluations and offers recommendations while serving as our liaison to the numerous charitable organizations in Lee & Collier counties. Mary Beth also coordinates the Schulze Scholar Program in Collier County.
Before working for the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, Mary Beth was the assistant principal of a parochial school in north central Florida. She also worked for many years as the director of a faith-based education program for a parish serving more than 400 students. Mary Beth’s responsibilities in those roles included overseeing teachers, selecting curriculum, and working with parents to best advance the educational needs of their children.
Originally from New Jersey, Mary Beth moved to Florida 18 years ago where she graduated, with honors, from Saint Leo University. She recently completed her master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Florida Gulf Coast University. Living with two of her children in Bonita Springs, Florida, Mary Beth appreciates the opportunity to travel to north and west to visit her sons and soak up the changes of seasons, cold weather and snow (for very short periods of time)!
