-Owner | Chief Operating Officer
Mary resides in Madison Lake, MN with her husband, Brad, her four children, Victoria (15), Lydia (14), Evan (9), Evelyn (1), Alexander (born April 2017) and their dog, Ava, and cat, Buddy. As a business professional, Mary has served various roles focusing on financial business processes, new technology implementations, and stood as a visible leader in change management support. Mary has completed 2+ years of college courses with a finance emphasis at Minnesota State University, as well as Phoenix University. Her educational goal is to complete a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance, and an Associates in Early Childhood Education. As a proud mother of three, and active member in the community, Mary has volunteered for the local ISD 77 events and groups, including leading a Math Masters, Gifted and Talent after school group, and lending a helping hand at PTO sponsored events. Mary has also served as a Parent Advisory Board Member for a local Mankato daycare center. Mary's vision for Pitter Patters starts with her passion for going above and beyond the expected standards. Her goals are to bring accountability and visibility into daycare centers, and increase awareness about the importance of early education. Mary believes her goals can be accomplished by offering a daycare center that has a committed and focused educational staff group that is supported by their environment, support staff, and leaders. She believes teachers supported by these aspects are more enabled to stay engaged with educational programs, approaches and support that young minds need. With first hand knowledge and experiences about what matters most to families, Mary hopes her center will set an example and raise the bar for all childcare centers.
