Design Associate and Supreme Organizer
Mary discovered her love for design and travel as a daughter of an airline executive and a stay at home mom who got bored with her surroundings on a regular basis. “Mom would redecorate or redesign our homes until they were perfect, then she would sell it and take on a new “project”.” Spring breaks were not a week at the beach; rather, they were spent in places like South Africa, Tokyo and Portugal. Her design aesthetic developed through the cultures, perspectives, landscapes, architectures and inspirations of her travels.
Following her passion for photography, she studied at the Ohio Institute of Photography, where she found beauty in photographing urban decay. “This type of environment has brought great ideas back to its base. The raw nature of decay is the beginning of a new idea and the end of an old one…anything is possible. Kind of like creating a great meal when you have nothing in the cabinets.
Graduating from PCC with a degree in Interior design, Mary found herself back at her childhood roots. “Interior design allows me to be creative and I find the design process similar to photography.”
A mom with twin girls, Mary has instilled her love of travel on her family. “Every week, my girls spin the globe and where ever the pin lands, that defines our dinner for Sunday night. We have researched and created meals from Turkmenistan, Spain, France and Ethiopia – every week is a new place.”
