On a personal note

After a lifetime in St Paul, Mary “crossed the river” six years ago and moved to downtown Minneapolis. She loves the urban lifestyle and enjoys walking to Twins games, local theaters and art galleries, bike riding along the river, listening to music in the parks and eating at great restaurants. Her love of architecture, Minnesota history and exploring neighborhoods fits perfectly with her career.
