Mary joined the Marathon team in 2018 after spending four years managing her family’s small business in Glendale. An avid proponent of volunteer work, she has worked on campaigns for Los Angeles City Council member Paul Krekorian, as well as conducting community outreach for other elected officials in the Glendale and Burbank areas.
