Mary Ann's voluminous resume includes seven decades of work as a designer, metal smith, jeweler, educator and studio artist. Subsequent to WWII, she was the first woman to be hired by Ford Motor Company's automotive division, and she designed for other corporations, including Goodyear, Alcoa, and US Steel.
