I have many years of experience bringing the sights and sounds of Charleston to visitors and newcomers. My tours have been featured in Fodor's Travel Guide and Diversion Magazine. I am also the author of five popular guide books about the area's culture, architecture and history.
In addition to being a licensed tour guide, I am a guest speaker at special programs at the College of Charleston and a former docent at local historic sites. Before pursuing my current avocation as a tour professional, I was a classroom teacher, and I hold a Master's Degree in Education (from the College of Charleston, of course). Let me introduce you to the city where I've lived my entire life and that has been home to my family for over 170 years.

Mary was extremely informative and passionate on her City of Charleston!! She has a thorough knowledge of the history of her city. I would definitely hire her again upon our visit to Charleston!
