Mary Beth Brown
Mary Beth came to Back Cove Financial in October 2008. Her entry into the financial services field coincided with the most volatile markets in recent history, and her learning curve was steep indeed. Fortunately for all of us, she had 20 years of experience in office administration that she could use as her foundation. Fast-forward to today, and Mary Beth is the friendly voice you hear when you call our offices. Her work ethic and diligence are exemplary, and she continues to be invaluable to all of us. When Mary Beth is not running our office, she is running her home as a wife to Jim and mother to Maggie and Bridget. Mary Beth's priority is her family and friends, and her home is a comfortable, welcoming haven to the people in her life. Fun fact: In her spare time, Mary Beth likes to run with the family dog, Olive, work out with kettle bells and continue improving on her sewing skills.
