Mary was born in Northridge, a town situated in Southern California. According to her mother, the first word Mary uttered as a baby was “horsey.” At the age of 6, she received her first pony and participated in her inaugural horse show at the age of 10. Over the next 12 years, Mary and her father embarked on a series of equestrian ventures, including horse shows, rodeos, barrel racing, and pole bending, which marked the highlights of her early years. In her Senior yearbook, Mary expressed her desire to one day reside in Northern California, specifically mentioning the town of Auburn, which left a lasting impression on her during a family vacation. Mary regarded Auburn as the most breathtaking town she had ever seen. Driven by her passion for assisting others, Mary pursued a college education with the aim of becoming a Respiratory Therapist, a career she found fulfilling for 35 years at Kaiser Permanente. During this time, she met and fell in love with Ed, a USAF officer, who captivated her and eventually led them to Northern California. Mary courageously left behind her familiar surroundings and embarked on a new life with Ed in Northern California, where they purchased a ranch located 12 miles from Auburn. Together, they raised three boys as well as numerous horses and animals.
Mary and Ed continued their respective careers, and during vacations, Mary would enthusiastically drag Ed to Open Houses, as she had a fondness for exploring homes and attending home shows. Little did she know at the time that her passion for real estate would eventually lead her to become a Realtor. Mary found joy in being a military spouse and supporting her husband’s career. When they relocated to Northern California, Mary considered herself incredibly fortunate. She adored her new hometown nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains’ foothills, with its abundance of riding trails, lakes, rivers, and wildlife. Pilot Hill, the quaint town they settled in, truly felt like paradise to Mary and Ed. However, tragedy struck in 2012 when Ed lost his life. Following this devastating loss, Mary decided to retire from the medical profession and spent the subsequent years sailing. It was during an afternoon on the ocean that Mary found her calling as a Realtor.
