About Mary

"Strong Communities make for a strong nation"

A Bit About Me...

I have cared deeply about the quality of life for others.

I was that child in the school library reading every biography about the pioneer women who helped build our young nation, who shared a strong vision and an unrelenting persistence.

I was that kid from a large family, sitting around the dinner table talking about the challenges in the world, never shrinking from our heated discussions about how to solve them.

I was that teenager at slumber parties who, while others were painting their nails and talking about cute boys, was in the corner talking about how we are created equal and that we have a right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

My Life's Path...

I have spent the balance of my life with my sleeves rolled up in communities, empowering people to become their best, highest selves, to be educated and healthy and able to take care of themselves and their families.

I am a community builder, having built partnerships between local businesses, governments, and agencies, nonprofits, faith communities, schools, the media, and ordinary citizens.

I have a master's degree in Conflict Analysis and Resolution from George Mason University.

I am a trained mediator, having been certified and practiced in the General District Court of Virginia.

I am a published author, writer, journalist and columnist focusing on social, political, and family issues.

I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have six children, four grandchildren and two orange tabby cats.

I am a Conservative...

I stand for:

  • Enforcing the Constitution
  • Empowering ‘We The People’
  • Resetting America
  • Restoring Freedom

Our Republic is under attack!
We are witnessing the largest Constitutional crisis and corruption scandal in American history!
Our State of Virginia, our U.S. Constitution, our Rule of Law, and our founding principles are under attack by a Deep State, unelected, globalist government and their dark agenda to destroy America.
I am demanding…


A Turning Point...

When I came to realize that for better or worse, we are inescapably interconnected—politically, socially, economically, environmentally, and technologically—I realized that, like in no other time in our history, we need new skills and tools, new innovative approaches to meet these challenges we now face in our communities, our nation and in our relationship with the rest of the world.

The great turmoil that is rocking the very foundation of our society can instead become a turning point—a great transition—for us as individuals, and as a collective of We The People.  We have it in us to gather the same courage and determination of our founding fathers and mothers to step up, find each other, come together, and take swift, decisive action to course-correct this dangerous path that is causing us so many tears and so much trouble.

U.S. Senate Campaign...

I am running for the U.S. Senate as a Conservative Independent to cause a swift and gentle correction to our current and unsafe path, and to bring about positive, healthy, safe and sustainable change.

I am running for the U.S. Senate as a Conservative Independent to build strong Communities wherein people are healthy, educated and able to take care of themselves and their families.

As a woman and a mother, I feel a deep sense of protection and responsibility to ensure the successful, happy and prosperous lives of my family, my neighbors, my community, my fellow citizens, and our connection with the rest of the world.

As a citizen of the United States of America, I feel a deep love for this country, what it stands for, and a determination to preserve our Constitution, our achievements, our hopes, dreams and vision.
