Welcome, Mary! | MJ2 Marketing


Welcome, Mary!

Mary Foster, MJ2 Marketing intern.

I’ve always been referred to as the chatty friend or the extrovert. In elementary school, I often found myself in trouble for talking too much, but I simply loved making connections. Funnily enough, I’m pursuing a degree in business and making connections with extraordinary people every day.  

I graduate from The Ohio State University this coming May with a major in Marketing and a minor in Business Analytics. I chose Ohio State for a big city feel — coming from a small town, a big city is all I ever wanted. The endless opportunities and outdoor weekend markets while sporting a local coffee keep me planted in Columbus.  

Mary Foster, MJ2 Marketing Intern.

I fell in love with marketing after struggling to find a major I connected with, and ultimately following in the footsteps of my mentor and big sister. Sure enough, just like my childhood, I loved everything she did, and marketing was the perfect fit for me. After a digital marketing class last spring, I found my perfect match and sought out a digital marketing firm like MJ2!  

Outside of my professional life, I find joy in creating crowd pleasing recipes. I take pride in color coded meal plans and weekly (normally seasonal) desserts. While waiting for the kitchen timer to go off, you can find me reading a new book or sitting on the front porch with a coffee. I also have a huge passion for helping and supporting the unhoused communities around Columbus.
