Mary was born and raised in Southern California as the sixteenth of seventeen children. She followed the career path of several of her siblings and became one of the few female meat department managers for Safeway. She has had a kaleidoscope of occupations over the years: serving as a teen-awareness speaker, sales manager for Vineyard Music, private caterer, office manager/bookkeeper for a Christian radio station, and she is now an aspiring YouTube influencer advancing the Kingdom. Mary and her husband Norm raised a son and daughter who love the Lord and serve in ministry and elementary education. Mary is outgoing and energetic, and is enthusiastic about living her life all about Jesus.
