Mary Gregory has been an educator since 1986 in various environments in support of her military spouse. Her degrees from Bowling Green State University allowed her to teach initially in Virginia where she was also selected to become the summer protocol manager for the Department of Behavioral Biology. After moving to Colorado, she resumed teaching and also served as an assistant coach for the the girl's basketball program. For the last several years she has been the presenter and care taker of the district's portable planetarium available for both school and community use. She is the very proud parent of four children who have all chosen to pursue science/military careers of their own in various branches.
