Mary adds her many years of people skills and public speaking experience to the podcast. Her years as a franchise and small business owner, dance instructor, contracts administrator and celebrant add to her storytelling ability and love for backroad travels and excitement adds to the success to the podcast. She stays busy with her other passion of sewing and tailoring and offers her services in the Mohave Valley area with Stitch and Mimi. You won’t find her far away for being the Mimi she loves to be to her four grandchildren.

Chris and Mary enjoy traveling the backroads and learning more and more about the state they now plan to retire in and make friends wherever they go!  There are planning many podcasts and are hoping to do a few live shows/recordings along their travels. Stay tuned and thanks for listening!
