Mary Burke

I like pushing clients to think about their organizations differently. It’s always amazing to see the end result of a particular campaign or project, and it’s equally as incredible to show a client how creative solutions can drive their business objectives.

Mary is an agile and innovative marketing, advertising and strategic communications professional who thrives in the multifaceted role she plays on the CHIEF strategy team. Her experience extends to Fortune 500 clients, global e-commerce companies and consumer advocacy causes, and her ability to expertly juggle multiple projects at once is greatly appreciated by team members and clients alike. At CHIEF, Mary’s work spans across a variety of activities, from content development and community engagement to research and analytics evaluation, and we all enjoy retweeting the stories that she skillfully spins in 140 characters or less.

Mary earned a BS in Commerce from the University of Virginia.


Vienna, Virginia, otherwise known as the most superior part of the DMV, in my completely unbiased opinion.

Noteworthy Story or Next Adventure

Last spring I traveled to a remote beach town in Brazil for my brother’s wedding. I’m still trying to convince him and his wife to take us all back there every year for their anniversary!‬‬‬

Favorite App/Book/Pub

I’m a shameless Instagram fanatic. I love the notion of documenting life through imagery—plus everything looks better with the Valencia filter! ‬

DC Go-to's

I enjoy hiking at Great Falls or running near Gravelly Point. In terms of restaurants, the options are endless, but my absolute favorite is a hole in the wall Indian place by Howard University. I love finding DC’s hidden culinary gems!
