Prior to joining Telemus, Mary worked for over ten years as a Divorce and Family law attorney. Mary’s eager desire to help people and to add value to their lives made the transition to Financial Planning/Wealth Advisory a natural one from practicing law. Her strong analytical skills and ease of working with financial concepts and numbers makes Mary an asset the clients she serves. Mary’s background as a lawyer provides her with the unique ability to actively listen, issue spot, strategize, develop alternative recommendations, problem solve, and act compassionately that add value to her client relationships.

Born and raised in the Western Suburbs of Chicago, Mary returned to raise her family in the same neighborhood where she grew up. In her free time, Mary loves spending time with family, traveling, exploring the outdoors, and trying new local restaurants.
