What Makes Someone Independent?

Mary Coupland / Owner and Founder of Compass & Clock

Mary was born in Brooklyn, NY and grew up on Long Island. She attended The Fashion Institute of Technology, earned an AA in Fashion Buying & Merchandising, and continued for another two years in the marketing program. When Mary was 23, she moved to Columbus, Ohio and that’s where she met her husband, whom she has been with for 31 years. They have two children and have been living on Bainbridge Island for 20 years. Mary was a Buyer for just shy of 25 years, but in 2006 she needed to make a career change due to the travel and that her kids were toddlers. Mary took her relationship building and retail skills and applied it to her new job at the North Kitsap Herald, where she sold advertising as a Marketing Representative. In November of 2013 a client of Mary’s from the North Kitsap Herald reached out to her via LinkedIn wanting to discuss a potential marketing project. That LinkedIn message set the course for where she is today, helping seniors and their families in the West Sound. Mary’s goal is to provide folks 40 and older, with free information as it pertains to aging, well in advance, to avoid a crisis mode, and enjoy their journey.

Compass & Clock launched on January 1st, 2018. This business is a legacy to her Mom. Mary started her own company because her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2008. Mary feels that if she knew then what she knows now, her parent’s quality of life together for the last five years of her mom’s life would have been so much better.Compass & Clock is a FREE multimedia program designed to help other families have access to information and resources through a variety of mediums so they can make smart decisions and achieve a better future.

Mary believes that she is not the expert on all matters that pertain to aging, but she surrounds herself with experts so as a team they can help their neighbors.
