Hi! I’m Maria Ranahan.

I'm the Community Manager of Cards Against Humanity and our boring new shipping company, Blackbox. I recently managed our holiday promotion called Cards Against Humanity Saves America. It was very fun and now I'm very tired.

I'm also the Director of the Science Ambassador Scholarship, a full-ride scholarship for women in STEM. I'm available for freelance and pro-bono work, especially if you're a nonprofit in Chicago or a woman running for office.


I have a degree in Advertising, Public Relations, and Political Science from Loyola University Chicago, with a very impressive GPA. I’ve written and worked for nonprofits like Poetry Pals, Arrupe College, and NeighborSpace.
