Maureen T. Fitzgerald is a born and raised, Midwest woman with a heart for family. The youngest of three girls born within three years, Maureen grew up knowing the importance of family for companionship and to help with the farm work. Her youth was filled with family, 4-H, reading, and more. Upon high school graduation, she attended Iowa State University and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design and Journalism. She later attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha to receive her Master’s Degree in Public Administration.
True to her roots, for 25 years, Maureen has been a county and state 4-H judge. She is also an annual judge of the Nebraska State entries of the National “Make it With Wool” competition, sponsored by the American Wool Council, The American Sheep Industry, and American Sheep Industry Women. Yet, if you ask, she will still tell you her favorite hobby is reading. Maureen also sits on the Board of Restoration Exchange Omaha (REO), which seeks historic preservation and adaptive reuse of building sites, instead of demolition. In part to this groups’ efforts, Omaha has seen several buildings restored into historic hotels.
