Mary Dooe joined the Marketplace team in June 2011 as a production intern for Marketplace Morning Report. She's worked on nearly every show and desk at Marketplace, as a digital producer, radio producer, and director as needed. Mary was an assistant producer on the Sustainability Desk in 2013 working on the special project Consumed.
Mary graduated from Columbia University with a degree in history and anthropology. She also completed her master's at the New School for Social Research in New York City. She has interned, written, and/or worked for Harper's Bazaar, the New York Daily News, the Newark Star-Ledger, CBSNews.com, and Studio360 with Kurt Andersen, among others. A Boston native and lifelong competitive swimmer, she currently resides in (not as warm and sunny as she expected) Los Angeles... and very much misses the New York subway system.
