About Mary Catherine McAlvany

Mary-Catherine is the mother of four children and wife of David McAlvany.  She is a philosophy and theology graduate of Boston College, an associate member of Keble College, Oxford, a former member of the board of The Warren Electric Group (a family business), and the former owner and designer of M Jewelry Designs.

Currently she is a homeschooling mom and advocate. When not found teaching her children, cleaning the house, chasing her very curious and rambunctious toddler around, or cooking (which she loves!), she can be found reading, dancing, hiking, teaching Sunday School, riding her bike, performing in community theater, cross country skiing, eating really good food, watching movies, writing poetry, and traveling. Mrs. McAlvany is also a dance instructor and an artistic company member of Merely Players in Durango, Colorado. She loves musicals and singing.  Lots. All around the house.  And it’s contagious.  Her children sing, too.
