Mary Grace is a Winston-Salem native and attended North Carolina State University where she met her husband, Charlie. Post graduation, Mary Grace lived in Atlanta for several years before moving to Charlotte, NC, where she was first introduced to Hilliard Studio Method. Fitness has always been a priority for Mary Grace- first for the mental benefit, but also to stay healthy and fit. She frequented hot yoga and spin classes for years but eventually found that she looked and felt her best when her workouts involved heavy weights.

In 2022 Mary Grace moved home to Winston-Salem and reconnected with Lucy Noell. She was there to support Hilliard from the very first pop-up class, becoming one of the first members, and was the first to hit her 100-class milestone.

“I truly believe in the HSM workout- It is more than just a workout- It’s a lifestyle and the HSM Studio is such a happy place! HSM has transformed my body and my mind. It is a no judgment zone, meeting you where you are in your fitness journey. I love the use of heavy weights, the opportunity to “level up,” and that it is a total body workout, designed to be taken on a daily basis. I have done many, many workouts and the physical results from HSM are second to none.”

With Mary Grace’s consistency, dedication, positive energy and her love for Hilliard, Mary Grace has quickly made a difference in the Winston-Salem Studio as the Studio and Operations Manager.

When she is not at the studio, Mary Grace can be found catching up with friends, or most importantly, spending time with Charlie, their two young children, Mary Charles (3) and Bowen (1), and their black lab, Lolly!
