Mary graduated from Loyola University Chicago in 2013 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and a minor in International Film and Media studies. She admits she didn’t do much with her Psychology degree, except for the ever constant analyzing she would do all day long of every person she meet. (she’s kidding.) After graduation Mary began a video production internship with a real estate network that quickly turned into a full time position. Mary claims that after three years of learning everything she’d ever need to know about buying and selling a home, she decided to leave Chicago for Milwaukee. She took a Marketing position with a landscaping company and moved all of her worldly possessions to the Brew City. After a year or so she decided she wanted to branch out. She found a Digital Marketing role position with a very small company that provided just that. While with them Mary was able to learn a lot about digital marketing, use her video production skills and became well versed at balancing multiple clients from various industries. Which brought her to Saturn Lounge. “I was lucky enough to hear about the open Project Manager position from Saturn Lounge Graphic Designer, Malory Larson. When she described the job to me, I instantly knew I’d be a perfect fit. Since starting in April of 2018, I have already jumped in head first. After just 3 months I already feel like an integral part of the team and I have learned so much. I am very excited to be here and I hope to stick around for quite some time.”
