Get to know me
My name is Mary and I am the Managing Partner at A-Action Home Inspection Group. My husband and I started A-Action in 2012. We grew our business from a one person team (my husband) to a team of six home inspectors (not including my husband). I mainly work from home, although I do venture out occasionally to market the business, teach Real Estate classes, and attended Sesh Coworking meetings. :) When I'm not working, I'm typically cuddling with one of my three dogs and/or traveling. My husband and I are constantly on the move, exploring new places or visiting family. I never thought I'd end up in Houston; it's certainly been an adventure and I'm looking forward to seeing what the future holds for myself and my business.
Who is your biggest Girl Crush and why?
I am completely obsessed with the Duchess of Cambridge, although that's mostly because I covet her wardrobe. As far as role models go, I think Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand is an amazing woman. She's managed to balance motherhood, running a country, and standing up to much bigger political personalities...she also has a great fashion sense.
What is your Spirit Animal and why?
A sloth - if I didn't have to work all the time I'd be napping or reading a book on my couch. I'm a pretty lazy person, I just hide it really well.
What is your favorite leisure spot, restaurant or gathering space in Houston?
I love the MFAH and HMNS. They are such amazing institutions that serve our city so well.
Why do you want to be a part of the Sesh Community?
I love the idea of women coming together to make each other stronger. So often strong women are pitted against each other, and that only serves to strengthen the patriarchy. I'm so happy Meredith created a safe space for women to feel free to express themselves and exercise their creativity without fear of judgement.
What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the Sesh Community?
I am crazy organized and really good at setting up business...by that I mean, I know how to file paperwork really, really well. I even made an infographic on how to set up an LLC! I would love to help anyone who needs help with the organizational side of launching a business.

What are some small things that make your day better?
My three dogs - they have the cutest faces and love me unconditionally. Everyone deserves to be loved like that.
