Mary Jo Cross
I grew up in Cape Elizabeth, graduated from the University of Maine at Orono with a degree in Speech Pathology and moved to Boston upon graduation to explore other opportunities. I joined R.M. Bradley in the commercial division, became licensed and worked as a site selector for a company specializing in finding sites for franchises around New England. I then joined the Stride Rite Corporation real estate division and choreographed their move to a new corporate headquarters in Cambridge. It seemed appropriate to move into residential sales in Cambridge which I did for the next 8 years. Maine beckoned in 1994 and I joined Coldwell Banker as Relocation Director and built a successful department working with many corporate clients to assist their employees arriving or departing the area. I have an appreciation for both urban living and the slower pace of living in southern Maine. I have been a board member of Casco Bay Sunrise Rotary since 1995 participating in many local and international projects. I was a corporator for the Sweetser School involved in fundraising to support their excellent programs for a number of years. Interests include travel, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, golf, theater and adding to my antique globe collection!
