A Short Bio of Mara Lee
by R.J. Mishica
In this writer’s opinion, very few words are needed to describe, or better yet warn those who don’t see life as an opportunity… “Get Out Of The Way!”.
For many years I have been a first-hand witness of
the prowess, capability and determination of a person dedicated to learning and applying with precision that which she has mastered. Beyond the immediate recognition for doing that which man will never master, motherhood, a noble profession indeed, Mara has gone on to fund raise, market, promote, design, create, develop, manage, illustrate, edit, collaborate, coerce, coddle, generate and glue. She has juggled the image of Fortune 500 companies, mid-west businesses and local interests alike. I have witnessed her duct taping a phone to her hand to finish sales calls she had promised herself to make, as a stage manager using her body to prevent a scenery element from collapsing while being groped by Tony Orlando (but not Dawn), all the while composed and elegant, delivering success after success to those who trusted her to do so.
Mara’s life education, as would be admitted by most, surpassed that of her institutional training many years past. An avid approach to logic and using it as a means to solutions, is surpassed by none. I could spend hours touting her accomplishments, but would rather share my own wisdom in saying join the fun, or indeed you will be waving from the dock to the boat you missed.
