I’M ANN MARIE SCHEIDLER!
Born and raised on the North Shore of Chicago, I’ve always had a genuine love and curiosity for people and their stories. As far back as the eighth grade, I remember wanting to grow up and be the next Barbara Walters.
I studied journalism at the University of Notre Dame (go Irish!) and entered the job market when news careers were hard to come by. After a decade in advertising and communications consulting, I rediscovered my love for storytelling working for Chicago’s leading luxury lifestyle publishers both as a writer and an editor. These assignments took me around the world and connected me to some of the most fascinating people I ever met.
As much as I loved my roles in magazine writing, I could never shake the idea that I wanted to build something of my own. That’s why in 2018, I launched my blog. AnnMarieScheidler.com lets me dive deep into the things I find most interesting and share from a perspective of a slightly more seasoned blogger. My promise is to always share content that is true to me.
