Mary started her career as a school teacher (Business Economics and Accounting) in 1975. In 1981, she married Fred Reynolds, joined Reynolds Travel in 1982 and in 1983 took over the business from him. She started with 4 employees and built her business to 65 employees and one of the big names in travel. She lists travel, business and strategic planning as her passions. If she's not watching an African sunset in the bush with a G&T in hand, you might find her somewhere in Argentina, her other favourite destination, "for the tango, fabulous food and wine and its gorgeous people".
