There's Something About MaryOriginally from Baltimore, Mary has had a diverse and unconventional career before settling in Williamsport in the year 2000. She describes her life as her piece of art, like the collages that illustrate her book, a collaborative composition of all the individual pieces that come together to form a whole piece of art, the art of the heart. Mary has lived and worked in many interesting locations. In Florida, she was an art director for the Port St. Lucie Independent newspaper and a day care teacher at Indian River Community College. She lived in Puerto Rico for ten years where she had a health food restaurant, Punta de Energia, and began her own holistic center, The Open Heart Retreat. She worked as a staff member in two New York spiritual centers, Omega Institute and The Foundation for A Course In Miracles. In Virginia Beach at Edgar Cayce's Association for Research and Enlightenment, she worked as a correspondence coordinator, lecturer, and Egyptian tour guide. When Mary moved to Williamsport to be near her family, she became a Wellness Coach at Freshlife, where she worked for seven years. It was there that she met her husband, David DeFebo. In the spring of 2007, Mary began writing and illustrating an inspirational book, "The Heart of the Matter" She describes the book as, "the result of a willingness to listen to and follow my heart...like a personal thesis as a student of life, it is a reflection of my journey, a path with heart." The book is about the whole heart that guides the reader to an experience of being wholeheartedly happy. It is a spiritual message that transcends different beliefs and divisions, so that we can remember the love that unites us all at heart.
