Mary Burman graduated from Oklahoma State University in 2005, earning duel bachelor degrees in both Business Marketing and Chemistry. After graduation, she left the mainland to join the Coast Guard/Merchant Marines, as a navigation and safety officer, traveling between the North Pacific Islands and Norway. As Mary says, “The saltwater is good for my equilibrium”, so in 2012, she moved to Rockport, Texas. She can’t claim Texas as her birthplace, but she says “I got here as fast as I could”. Mary loves the Texas coast and finds passion in helping, improving and supporting people and communities in all walks of life. Eight days after Hurricane Harvey, Mary joined LJS Engineering which has since grown into WindShore Engineering. Mary enjoys surfing, fishing, reading, volunteering and loves anything in and around sunshine and saltwater.
