Real estate is the perfect career choice for Mary Jane since she has moved 8 times and lived in five states: Illinois, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Iowa and Indiana. After all the moves, in 2003 MJ moved back home again to Indiana to be near family in Bedford. She enjoys the warmer winters in Southern Indiana! Now an empty nester, MJ lives near Lake Monroe.

As with many moms, MJ enjoys visiting her children – 2 sons and a daughter-in-law – who live in New York but she wishes they lived closer!
Her interest in gardening and history of moving has led her to a “Bloom where you are planted” philosophy.
