What would you be doing if you weren't working at JT?

Clearly, I have no idea or I wouldn’t have stayed at JT for nearly 31 years!

Mary joined Jasculca Terman in 1985 with a background in health care and not-for-profit public relations and was named managing partner in January 2011. During her tenure at JT, she has directed hundreds of public affairs projects, supervising major local and national outreach and media campaigns, crisis management projects, public education initiatives and internal communications initiatives tackling issues such as healthcare, job security, mergers and acquisitions, not-for-profit services, higher education, product recalls and world hunger.

In a crisis, Mary is on the front lines providing strategic counsel, drafting messages, preparing questions and answers and identifying and training spokespersons. Mary also conducts media and message training, presentation skills training, for which she co-developed a specialized “Delivering Difficult Messages” seminar, helping thousands communicate effectively when the news is tough.

Mary graduated with a bachelor’s degree in communications from Miami University and is the mother of two.
