She had significant church and community involvement including several personal small businesses she shared with Doug: rental stores, a catering business, and most recently, Mary's Formalwear and Awesome Blossoms Bridal.
She was a member of the Women's Prosperity Network and the Better Business Development Council (BBDC) for the Cocoa Beach Chamber of Commerce.
