Mary is a public affairs and presidential communications specialist in the IU Office of the President.

She previously served as a news content specialist for IU Communications’ internal team where she was a writer for Inside IU and Inside IU Bloomington.

She has a background in print and online journalism, having worked as a reporter for the Bloomington Herald-Times and a blogger for the Huffington Post. Mary earned a Master of Fine Arts in fiction writing from Southern Illinois University and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Indiana State University. She grew up playing in the cornfields and woods of rural Indiana and still seeks them out when she wants to unwind.

As a writer, I love following my own curiosity to uncover something new.
