Marie Wilson has worked full-time for the Daily Herald since September 2010, and has been covering Naperville since June 2013 after starting in Aurora and Lombard. She graduated tied for first in class rank from the College of Media at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May 2010, with a major in News-Editorial Journalism and a minor in Gender and Women's Studies.

Wilson grew up in Wheeling and has known she wanted to be a journalist since she was 12. Before coming to the Daily Herald full-time, she interned as a reporter at the Naperville Sun, Daily Herald and Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Her work also has appeared in the Champaign News-Gazette, The Daily Illini and the Wheeling Countryside. In 2013, Wilson received two Peter Lisagor Awards from the Chicago Headline Club -- one for her work on a series about Title IX and its effects on gender equality in public education, and another her contribution to coverage of the stabbing deaths of two children in Naperville. Wilson won fourth place in the 2010 Hearst Journalism Awards multimedia competition for a news website she produced about a plan to bring better broadband Internet access to Champaign-Urbana. She was a research and writing assistant for a book about the history of campus architecture at the University of Illinois, which has yet to be published.
