Ann-Marie Giarrusso

Board Member, Mary Immaculate Guild

Ann-Marie was born and raised in Lawrence; and, as a teenager, would pass the Mary Immaculate Nursing home daily as she walked to and from St. Mary High School. It is not surprising that she would return to Lawrence to serve as a member of the Development Board at Mary Immaculate Health/Care services, where she has served since 2016. 

While her children attended school, Ann-Marie was a member of the Development board at Central Catholic High School and a member of the Advisory Board at Presentation of Mary Academy. Ann-Marie had a successful and lengthy 37-year career at Lawrence General Hospital, where she spent several years working on the floors, in the Emergency Department and in Administration. For the last 16 years at LGH, she was the Director of Medical Staff Services. 

Ann-Marie lives in Seabrook, NH, with her husband, John. She enjoys traveling, spending time with her six grandchildren and attending their athletic events, cooking, reading, and doing yoga.
