I consider myself a teacher, a feminist, an activist, a sexologist, a spouse and a mother (not necessarily in that order).  I like to start things:  I started a teen pregnancy prevention program in Lucas County Schools, a sex education program at Emory University, the Cocoon Shelter in Bowling Green, and the Women’s Center at BGSU.  I believe in justice, passion, the well-crafted written and spoken word, the power of kindness and the possibility of redemption.

Research/Teaching Interests:  
Mary has been teaching, training, researching, and studying sexuality and gender issues for more than 20 years.  Her areas of expertise include women’s sexuality, sexual & domestic violence, developmental sexology and sex education methodology.
