What happens when you combine a native St. Louisan with a constant travel itch who loves all things food, and has a knack for throwing spontaneous movie quotes into everyday conversation? You get Mary O’Leary.
Mary is a proud Mizzou Tiger who received her B.J. in 2021 from the Missouri School of Journalism (“the first and best” she’ll tell you) with an emphasis in Strategic Communication. While at Mizzou, she was a member of Chi Omega and the 2020 Homecoming Steering Committee.
After graduation, Mary spent six months in France as an Au Pair. While she was there, she traveled to many new places, including Prague, Budapest, Monaco, and more. Mary also improved her French skills, so much so that she and her instructors now consider her “highly advanced” in the French language (not fluent, that’s too scary of a word).
Mary can often be found watching Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, at a St. Louis Cardinals game, on a plane, or in her bed. She loves spending time on Instagram curating her personal brand, on TikTok wishing she could dance like Gen Z, or on Snapchat keeping up with her streaks.
