Marketing Project Manager

517 E. Kirkwood Avenue

Bloomington, IN 47408


Mary joined IU Communications in early 2011 as administrative coordinator. Her duties included managing multiple calendars and scheduling meetings, arranging travel, purchasing office supplies, preparing invoices, and assisting in the billing process. After a stint as administrative coordinator for the associate vice president, marketing, Mary was ready for new challenges, and transitioned to a marketing project manager position in 2015.

During her time with IU Communications she has worked closely with the creative services team and the financial and administration office. Working in all her roles has taught her to wear many hats and how to readily adapt in the ever-changing world of higher education and marketing. She enjoys building relationships with clients and is excited to help promote the tradition and excellence of Indiana University.

Prior to working at IU Communications Mary received her bachelor’s degree from Indiana University in environmental management.

She spends her free time hiking the many trails in and around Bloomington with her boyfriend and their two dogs. She also enjoys running with her dog Hudson, being outdoors, and planning travels and adventures with her friends and family. 

I love the variety of what I do. Every day is something different.
