Hey hey, it’s Mary K! I’m a marketing specialist, a fitness trainer, and a writer.

I earned my Bachelor and Master of Business Administration in marketing at Loyola University Chicago. I studied abroad in Rome and Southeast Asia, and I was also a dance minor. I started my professional journey freelancing with startups, and now most of my time is spent in the corporate world of tech. In my spare time, I teach fitness classes, write, read, dance, bake, and chase after sunrises on Chicago’s Lakefront Path.

My first bookRun My World, is available on Amazon. You can get your paperback copy here or the Kindle edition here!
