About Mary Schulman:
Mary graduated from the University of Maryland with a BS in Finance and then spent 10 years in the finance industry, including working at The Investor Responsibility Research Center (IRRC) selling corporate governance and socially responsibility research services to investors and corporations world-wide. As a new mom and a self-taught “wellness expert” she became passionate about healthy snacking. Seeing there were limited healthy snack options she founded Snikiddy, a brand of health-conscious snacks acquired by Utz Quality Foods Inc. in 2015 (Utz is ranked fourth in market share in U.S. salty snacks behind PepsiCo, Campbell Soup Co., and Kellogg Co.). Snikiddy retailed at over 2,000 retail doors such Target, Costco and Whole Foods Market. In 2016 Mary observed similar health-forward trends in the beauty industry and again seeking to solve a problem Mary co-founded PYT Beauty on a mission to offer high performance clean cosmetics for all those that seek it.
