Maren Ann Berge

After a successful career as a competitive alpine ski racer, Mären Berge (BA 1988 Economics) attended UW-Madison and was active in a variety of campus activities, proudly serving as president of Alpha Phi sorority. In Steamboat Springs, Colorado, her professional career has included various roles with the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation, the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club Foundation, as well as being a certified race administrator for the United States Ski Association.

Paul Berge (BBA 1960 Finance) says it is fitting his daughter be recognized alongside her mother, Mary Kunz Berge (1937-2012) (BS 1961 Home Economics), the first 100 Women honoree. Mären developed a passion for textiles when she worked closely with her mother during Mary’s many years as a fashion consultant for the Carlisle Collection of Fine Women’s Apparel. Paul chose to honor their special connection with a gift to the Mary & Paul Berge Fund for the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection. Mären has joined her parents in their support of the Collection by making a deferred gift to this endowment.
