Following graduation in 1990 with a B.S. in Accounting from CU – Boulder, Mary worked as a CPA in the tax department of Deloitte & Touche, Denver. She moved to annual tax season work after her three children were born, along with bookkeeping year round for churches and synagogues. Mary grew up in a family which included 15 pastors and missionaries, so it was a natural progression to work with non-profits—where the goal is helping her clients use their money well.
Mary also works as Finance Manager at her home church, Christ the Servant Lutheran Church (ELCA) in Louisville, CO. She is an active volunteer there, and with Community Health Initiative – Haiti. At home, Mary and her husband Karl enjoy renovating their 95-year-old homestead bungalow, and recently realized after 27 years, it will never be finished.
