Mary was born and raised in Austin, but she really grew up in her 14 summers at summer camp in the Texas Hill Country. From there, she moved out to North Carolina and graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2014 with a B.A. in English and minors in both Music and Education. She joined the Kidventure team after college as the Houston office manager, transitioning over to HR mid-2016. In her spare time, Mary can likely be found reading, exploring Houston and traveling outside the city, rooting for the Tar Heels, or spending time with friends and family.
