Mary graduated from McDonogh 35 Senior High in New Orleans and received her Associates Degree in Liberal Arts from Vista (now Berkeley) Community College. She worked 18 years for the government. Earning nearly six-figures, Mary resigned from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development on June 3, 2000, and withdrew her retirement to self-publish her debut novel Soulmates Dissipate.
Mary hosts a monthly relationship venue called Tell It All Thursdays, a place where adults openly dialogue about relationships and sex. Mary created this venue because generations of African-Americans are suffering from physical, emotional, and sexual oppression and it's time to break the cycle. The venue is held in Oakland every third Thursdays.
