Mary Ann Oklesson






Associate Publisher of New York Family

Mary Ann joined New York Family in  November 1995 to help with the re-launch in February 1996. She loves destination travel like Istanbul, Ephesus and Machu Picchu. Mary Ann recently returned from a trip to the French Riviera, exploring all the familiar places and some new adventures like the medieval city of Gourdon, high up in the Maritime Alps. She also loves Opera, Jazz and Motown. Mary Ann’s favorite childhood memories are her first “fancy” dress, leading the 1st grade parade and hearing bystanders say “Oh, isn’t she cute!”; sled riding in the chilly Pittsburgh winter and eating fudge at her aunt’s house.
