After successfully completing two tours of duty in traditional corporate marketing, Mary applied her skills to the emerging landscape of grassroots digital marketing and spent three years launching Portland-based Laughing Planet Café’s wildly successful social media strategy which earned her a 2011 “SoMe” National Social Media Award.
