Biography

In January 2007, after 5 years as VP/Creative Director at Publicis USA leading the highly successful Curves business, Mary walked away to pursue a very personal goal: creating KickSkirt™, an agency that's dedicated to improving the way smart brands are connecting with women.

During her twenty plus years in advertising, Mary's work has garnered creative awards including Clios, Addys, The One Show, and Communication Arts. More notably, she has twice won highest honors from The AWNYs for contributing to the positive portrayal of women. But what Mary really excels at is getting results. The recent Gold EFFIE for her work on Curves is proof that she not only connects with women, but also motivates them. While building the Levi's Jeans For Women brand, her campaign flooded Levi's 1-800 lines.

Mary is that rare creative person who is a stickler for good ROI. Her work ethic and talent have benefited the likes of McDonalds, Celestial Seasonings, Levis, Clorox, and GlaxoSmithKline among others. She has spent years at some of the top agencies throughout the world including Leo Burnett, Chiat/Day and Foote Cone and Belding.

Mary lives in Austin with her husband Steve, son Cal (14), daughter Isabel (11), a dog named Ruby, and a bird that repeats words it shouldn't.
