MaryAnn Sarosi has spent her career working on issues affecting vulnerable populations. After graduating from the University of Michigan Law School, Ms. Sarosi founded a legal services program serving low-income people in Chicago, Illinois. Since then, she has directed the Access to Justice program at the State Bar of Michigan, served as Assistant Dean for Public Service at U-Mn Law School, and as special assistant to the executive director of Legal Services of South Central Michigan.

Most recently, she was the strategic outreach attorney for the Youth Access Mitigation Committee. In that role, she organized an amicus brief led by former Governor William Milliken and signed by over 100 former judges and prosecutors. The brief, filed with the Michigan Supreme Court in February 2014, urged the retroactive application of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Miller v Alabama, which eliminated mandatory life without parole for youth 18 and under.

She was appointed to represent volunteers who work with delinquent youth or youth at risk of delinquency.

Her term expires December 31, 2023.
