Mary was raised in Upstate NY and grew up one of eight children in the Fingerlakes region. After graduation she received her nursing license and moved to Pennsylvania to raise her daughter. It was there that Mary along with a partner purchased a public water company and made substantial improvements bringing the drinking water up to the standards people expect. By setting the standard for water quality, infrastructure and customer service she learned firsthand about conservation and quality products.
Mary, along with her husband vacationed along the Grand strand for several years before making it their home over 14 years ago. "Growing up in a big family teaches you how to save money and it’s a pleasure working for a company that helps people do that every day".
