Mary began her Pilates journey by attending classes with Rita at the Northborough Town Hall gym. After years of trying other classes, videos, machinery, and gyms, she knew immediately that it was finally the right “fit” for her. Previous back issues improved over the first few months and the variety in the work outs kept her coming back for more. “Beyond her obvious knowledge of Pilates, fitness, and the body, I just loved Rita’s style, humor, and vitality. I was hooked!” With the expansion to the new space and additional class offerings at The Core Connection in 2010, Mary thought Rita might “need” her, too! Mary became the studio manager of The Core Connection in March of 2010. In 2016, Mary decided to pursue instructor training in STOTT Pilates® Reformer. As of February 2018, after eight plus years as studio/schedule manager, Mary ‘retired’ from her administrative duties at the studio to concentrate solely on teaching.
Mary holds an A.S. in Fashion Buying and Merchandising and a B.S. in Marketing from The Fashion Institute of Technology, SUNY, in New York City. She also has an A.S. and experience in office administration. Mary spent most of her career working in retail, including management and buying with Jordan Marsh, Boston, as well as merchandising with Liz Claiborne New York, Lucky, Juicy Couture, and DKNY Jeans. In her spare time, Mary enjoys reading, hiking, and spending time with friends and family. She is thrilled to be a part of The Core Connection team!
