After leaving The London College of Fashion, Mary began seven very manic years, summed up perfectly by the film “The Devil Wears Prada”. After amassing more clothes than she knew what to do with, Mary left the fashion industry and went back to college for a diploma in Secretarial Studies and Business Administration. She began a new line of work for a prestigious firm of architects in Regent Street where she was PA to one of the partners. She found the work fascinating and enjoyed it very much.
After taking time out to be a full-time mum, which she wouldn’t have missed for anything, Mary started looking for a part-time job that she could balance with being a mum when her second son started school. Luckily (for us!) she found the Conservatoire. Sixteen years later the job isn’t so part-time anymore and Mary, along with her collegue Chris, is in charge of administrating the individual music tuition programme, which includes being the first point of contact for students and tutors when they have a question or problem.
On her list of things she would take if she was stranded on a desert island, she’d take a photograph album, a wind-up radio and a piano (because she would no longer have an excuse not to practice).
