Mary Ward


I love working with clients to find creative solutions that result in highly effective and relevant communications and marketing strategies. For more than 25 years, I have worked as a communications and marketing professional, with a strategic focus on associations and non-profit organizations.

Phisher and LucyThroughout my career, I have created successful communications and marketing strategies for employers and clients, developed and managed comprehensive public relations campaigns, and produced award-winning publications.

My work has been chosen for numerous national awards in journalistic writing, publication design, and project management.

In 2013, I became the founder and owner of Brown Dog Communications. I am excited at the opportunity to leverage my experience to help clients achieve the highest level of success in their communications and marketing efforts. I am assisted in my office by my chocolate lab, Phisher (the official brown dog), and our black lab rescue, Lucy. We specialize in web design and development, web content management solutions, digital and print communications, and social media management.

For fun . . .

I enjoy fly fishing, volunteering for Hope on the Rise, discovering new rivers to fish throughout the world, sitting on my front porch, and spending time with family and friends.

Graphic Designer

I am a recent honors graduate from Western New England University with a degree in Marketing and Communications. I love and enjoy the diversity of my career, and I find inspiration in providing clients with creative designs that help them build a successful and unique brand.

As a student intern, I created dynamic marketing campaigns that included a combination of videography, photography and digital and print design. I have provided design work and videography for Clear Communications and iHeart Radio in Hartford, CT, VizConnect Marketing in Springfield, MA, and Envision Marketing Group in East Longmeadow, MA.

I am excited to be part of the team at Brown Dog Communications, and look forward to providing creative marketing and design solutions for our clients.

For Fun

I love adventure: Sky diving, bungee jumping in various locations throughout the world, spending time on York Beach, and sharing life with family and friends.
