Q and A with Mary, Baltimore County, Maryland
“If you find the positive in every day, you will be so much happier. Also, when you have goals and put them into the universe, you are speaking them into existence. Finding the positives and putting them out to others will get you into the right mindset to achieve your goals.”
Meet Mary: Elementary Teacher, Business Woman, & Make-up Artist
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: I am passionate about children, fitness, health, and empowering women. As a full-time elementary teacher and beauty advocate, I find time for all my passions. And I try my best to come through in all I do.
Something that I love about my beauty business (besides our products) are the causes we support. Our new foundation line, the Defend Innocence line, is dedicated to empowering parents, caregivers, and community members to help end child sexual abuse. I love that this line helps connects two of my passions while continuing to protect the innocence of children. I am currently promoting the Defend Innocence brand to continue to raise money for the cause. Ultimately, what will be raised will allow for more women to attend the Haven Retreat to receive the healing they need. I began my beauty business through Facebook, and I continually meet new people with it.

Don’t you just love Mary’s Fourth of July look?
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: I grew up in Annapolis my whole life, and I always wanted to be a teacher. I was definitely a tomboy until I was in high school (and even less in college). I was an athlete my whole life, and I still run these days.

Q: What is something you have learned that you would like others to know?
A: I have learned how to be positive and grateful for anything and everything life has to offer. If you find the positive in every day, you will be so much happier. Also, when you have goals and put them into the universe, you are speaking them into existence. Finding the positives and putting them out to others will get you into the right mindset to achieve your goals.
Whatever you have a passion for, you will find time for. We are so busy in life these days, but if you have a passion for it, you have to find time for it. Make it a priority! Children, and now, beauty, have become huge passions of mine. And I have found “jobs” that bring these two together. I never feel like I’m working, because I love what I do.
