I grew up in Greensboro, N. C., and after college was a Legal Secretary for Attorneys and 3 Judges (at different times). I moved to South Caroline and had a job waiting for me as Private Secretary to the Lt. Governor of S. C. (whose father was a United States Senator).
I was always in the School May Pole Dance as a child, did Square Dancing as a teen, and took some Ballroom Dance in my twenties.
After moving to Ga. I started into dance in a big way, attending many national Seminars and weekend workshops in Nashville, Tn. at the Opreland Hotel, with National and International Instructors. I teach Clog-Dance, Belly Dance for Fun and Exercise, Line Dancing, and have a performing dance team, and, of course, Ballroom Dance. I love dancing, choreographing, and enjoy doing wedding dances for Bride/Groom, and father/daughter, wedding parties, and, of course, the Fayette Celebrity Dancers.
Mary has lived in Peachtree City for 33 years and loves it. Her work career started in the airline business many years ago and she has always been in a customer service oriented job. She got interested in Real Estate when she worked for a local closing attorney and has been a Realtor® for 15 years. She is with Harry Norman, Realtors® and is part of a team with her daughter Amy. In 2013 Mary was President of the Fayette County Board of Realtors®, and the board was approached to co-sponsor the first Fayette Celebrity Dancers. Her theme for her Presidential year was “Realtors® Giving Back” so this event would help raise funds that would do just that. She was excited to be able to be one of the “Stars” and had a great time participating. Mary has been married to her husband Sam for 45 years, has one daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren.
