“We are pleased to welcome Marianne to our award-winning Abrakadoodle franchise system,” said Rosemarie Hartnett, CFE, President and Co-Founder of Abrakadoodle, Inc. “She brings strong business, marketing, customer relations and training experience that will help her build a strong and vibrant visual arts program to serve the community.”

Ms. Daley studied Business Management at Anne Arundel Community College and has held positions of increasing responsibility in marketing during her 30-year career with Hunter Douglas. A highlight of her career was time spent volunteering for the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, making homes for catastrophically disabled veterans. In her self-described “Marianne 2.0,” she wanted a new challenge and discovered Abrakadoodle. “I love the company,” Marianne Daley declared and added, “I was looking for an opportunity to meet people and to make a difference with a program that incorporates my love of kids and art.” Abrakadoodle is also a community-centered company known for making a difference with its Arts for All program that provides free, high quality art programming for kids and adults who would otherwise be unable to participate at Abrakadoodle locations nationwide. Marianne resides in Gambrills with her daughter and her daughter’s adorable poodle Molly.
