Mary began her career as a research-focused analytical associate at a New York law firm who went on to produce educational conferences and expositions specializing in intellectual property law before producing American Lawyer Media’s premier LegalTech trade shows in New York and California, among others.
Her event production experience led to webinars and large-scale trade shows for senior executives in the financial, pharmaceutical, data center and information spaces, as well as the communications technology industries. She is responsible for every aspect of a project -- from conceptualizing cutting-edge events, overseeing operations and developing thought-leadership, to bringing myriad events to successful fruition, both domestically and abroad.
Mary has embraced innovative, alternative business practices by reducing the carbon footprint of events and has designed a mobile event application to cut down on paper waste.
She received her Bachelor of Science from Fordham University and holds a Juris Doctor from the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University. She is an advocate for reducing plastic pollution in support of the Plastic Ocean Foundation, Surfrider Foundation and is a supporter of Audubon New York.
