She is also a master storyteller and won third place in the “Big Mouth Off”, a competition like the Moth in Boston.
When not working for her clients she is hiking, baking, storytelling, tending her flock of chickens, and organizing.
Mary has deep roots in Vermont with family that settled here in the 1700’s. Her grandfather, Austin, left the Glover family dairy farm in the 1930’s, like a lot of Vermonters, and headed for Beantown. Her 5th great grandfather, Jonas Phillips, was a founding son of Glover, VT. She is happy to be home.
