Mary grew up in Long Island, New York as the oldest of nine children. Her determination to succeed led her to complete an undergraduate degree while supporting herself through college.

After graduating with an undergraduate degree in Anthropology, Mary applied her education towards becoming an archaeological specialist for the California Office of Historic Preservation. She modernized and systemized the preservation’s approach to cataloging and maintaining records.

As the next step in Mary’s career, she became the General Manager (GM) for a solar company in Sacramento, where she significantly increased sales in her first month of employment. As a successful GM for this company, Mary realized selling was both fun and lucrative. She knew she excelled at using her sales skills and wanted to apply this knowledge towards co-founding an event planning company in 1986.

Her knowledge of human behavior and proven systems for increasing sales led to further success. She increased annual sales for the event planning company from $100,000 to $2 million in two years. Mary decided to start a new event planning company, Excellent, Adventures, as a sole-proprietor. She ran this company successfully for five years and learned not only how to manage people in a high-stress environment, but how to motivate people to achieve top performance.

Her interest in psychology and human behavior also led her to obtain her master’s degree in organizational development.
