Somers Cove Marina Commission Appoints New Manager

Crisfield, Md. (June 23, 2010) —The Somers Cove Marina Commission has selected Mary Taylor as the new Manager for Somers Cove Marina. Taylor has served as the Office Manager at Somers Cove Marina for the past 11 years as an employee of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

“I am looking forward to working with the Somers Cove Marina Commission to make Somers Cove even better and to keep its ties with the Crisfield community,” said Taylor.

Taylor’s working knowledge of Somers Cove Marina, coupled with her personal boating interests, make her a natural to lead the marina, as well as a valuable asset to marina customers. She attended Wor-Wic Community College where she studied accounting, computer software and pool operations. Her experiences in these areas strengthen the marina’s profitability. In addition to managing the marina, Taylor teaches Maryland Boater Safety classes and plans to offer classes in the near future to local residents and boat owners.

A graduate of Crisfield High School, Taylor recently celebrated 25 years of marriage to Lee Taylor, also of Crisfield. They are the proud parents of three daughters, Mary Lou Taylor, Mindy Bentley and Ashley Taylor. Prior to her employment with DNR, Mary was employed by the Crisfield Area Chamber of Commerce, Eastern Shore National Bank/Peninsula Bank and Sam’s Auto Center.
