Since the age of 16 Mary’s motto has been ‘Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life’.
When she was four she started her journey singing and gained substantial experience in the music industry and theatre with her stage performances. For many years she organized, produced and/or directed numerous music shows and youth choirs while at the same time enjoying sports.
Mary, valley-born on a farm in Northcote is married to her best friend Mike Etmanski who together are very proud of their ‘kids’ and their grandkids!
Life has not always been easy but never too much to knock her off her game. Always looking for new learning experiences, a variety of employment opportunities and being an owner of a small business has helped her with her numerous projects.
She is no stranger to Boards and Committees and is privileged to be granted the opportunity to sit on the Board of Directors of Valley Heritage Radio. With her history in business, fundraising, theatre and country music she will add her resourcefulness and energy to the existing team at the station.
