Marie Schwartz is the Founder & CEO of TeenLife.com, the leading discovery platform for teen-centered academic and experiential learning opportunities. These include summer and gap programs in the US and abroad as well as degree-awarding institutions such as private high schools and colleges.
Prior to founding TeenLife.com in 2008, Marie worked for McKinsey, American Express, Scudder Stevens & Clark, and Nelson Information. Her background in marketing and business development in the travel industry, together with her experience as a parent of teenage boys, inspired her to launch TeenLife.com.

After graduating from the American School of Paris, she received a BSE from Princeton University, studied business at the University of Hamburg (as a DAAD scholarship recipient), and received an MBA from Harvard Business School. In addition to serving on the board of Summer Search Boston, a non-profit that provides summer experiences and group mentoring to underserved youth, she is a Trustee of Steep Rock Preservation, and Trustee Emeriti of the Boston Ballet.
