Scott and Mariel are undergraduate sweethearts with a fairly unique fun fact: we got engaged, got a puppy, and moved to Ann Arbor in the span of eight days! We are East Coast (beast coast!) natives, but have lived all over – San Francisco for a few years and Boston for a few after that, and Scott spent considerable time in Beijing. Although we maintain separate hobbies – Scott enjoys indoor rock climbing and fishing, and Mariel is a runner and a prolific writer – we both love travelling, reading (huge HP fans), good wine, and our nine-month old black lab, Donner. Scott is an ex- and future management consultant, and Mariel was an elementary school teacher before completing her Education Policy and Management degree at Harvard, and now works for the Ross admissions team.
