Mary came to Memphis in 1999 to work for the Memphis Flyer and has stayed and become one of the people that makes Memphis awesome. When she was a writer & editor for the Flyer, she covered many community issues including education, neighborhood safety, urban development and historic preservation. Mary want on to work for Memphis city Mayor Wharton after her time at the Flyer.
In addition to her focus on community issues, Mary also has a big love for fashion, and did an 'on the street' interview of people she spotted with outstanding fashion sensibilities for her weekly Style Sessions. It was her love of style and of historic architecture that inspired the choice of Molly Fontaine's Lounge for her photo shoot.
