Mary Jo Minerich


Whether working on cultural institutions like the Otto M. Budig Theater, renovating historic apartments, or creating community anchors like Apple Street Market, Mary Jo approaches projects by posing questions about how spaces are experienced and understood to be meaningful by those who use them. Attuned to the relationships that make a place special, she responds to the unique opportunities in each project. When not working, Mary Jo can be found at countless community meetings, snuggling her greyhounds, Higgy and Pippy, or taking a walk someplace beautiful.
