Mary Long hails from Austin, Texas, and holds a BA from University of Texas and an M. Div. from Holy Cross School of Theology. Mary has a background in religious education and youth ministry, having worked for the Greek Archdiocese and Hellenic College, and has been facilitating retreats and events since 2003. From 2009 to 2011, she was privileged to serve as Director the Crossroad Summer Institute in Boston. In the past few years, Mary has taken her love of teaching into a full-time role as a Pilates & movement practitioner, which pairs surprisingly well with theology & spirituality.
