Performance Consultant, Alliance For Better Health

MaryBeth Schneider believes that connectedness is key to our overall well being. Having spent her career supporting people with developmental and other disabilities so that they are able to be included in all aspects of community life, MaryBeth recognizes that employment, safe housing, and other social determinants of health are an important complement to clinical care. In her current capacity as Senior Team Lead, MaryBeth works with national associations on governance, membership development, education and communications.

MaryBeth has enjoyed a very personal connection to the Grace Children’s Foundation (GCF) since its inception and has witnessed first- hand the unwavering dedication, compassion and selflessness of the Robertson family. Of serving on the GCF board MaryBeth says, “It is an honor to work in service of the mission of this exceptional organization. It’s true that ‘it is in the shelter of each other that the people live.’ I believe that GCF embodies that community-minded spirit; encouraging others to share their time, talent and resources for the benefit of children around the globe.” 

MaryBeth has a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Texas State University and master’s degree in Public Administration from The Sage Colleges.  MaryBeth lives in upstate New York with her husband Brian and two children, Jack and Anni.
