Mary is from Shanghai and has an extensive background in marketing and business development with a concentration in advertising technology. A University of Texas Advertising alumni, she began her career working for advertising technology firms in Shanghai and New York City. Her most recent position as VP, Executive Digital Producer at Joystick Interactive gave her the opportunity to grow with a small agency, scale their operations to global markets, and help execute an exit strategy resulting in the company’s successful exit in 2018. Energized by the fast-paced nature of high growth companies, Mary is now focusing her efforts on working with early stage startups specifically in the health technology sector. Mary is currently a full time MBA candidate at the Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice University.
Mary's favorite hobby is wax carving (jewelry making) and she loves sea turtles. She used to have pet turtles and she is now on the market for a new pet turtle.
