Mary received her B.A. and M.A from Brigham Young University, taught Composition and World Literature at UNLV, and even took a turn as an assistant Contracts Manager for Perini Building when they constructed the Paris Hotel and Casino. Now, she’s delighted to be studying, sharing and selling antiquarian books at the Las Vegas gallery. When she steps away from the books, she loves to bake, garden and hike.
