Award & Recognition

In 2019 I received the Conflict Resolution Center annual “Spirit of Peace” award given to volunteer mediators who embody the spirit of peace in their personal and professional lives.


M.J. Bauer, Executive Director for the Conflict Resolution Center says, “Marie approaches her work with thoughtfulness, empathy, and compassion for the needs of all the mediation participants. She skillfully employs mediation techniques to help individuals work through the layers of issues to help resolve conflict in a peaceful and productive way. We are fortunate to have her as a volunteer Mediator at CRC.”

In 2019 , I was recognized by AFCC-MN for my professional work and contribution to the MN Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCCMN).

“Marie José has contributed her time for years serving on the education committee of the Minnesota’s chapter of the AFCC helping organize its Lunch and Learns and half day conferences.” “Thank you, Marie José, for your support of AFCC MN!”
