Mae is available to help you Monday - Thursday from 9am - 1pm.
Mae Argilan is a native Marylander. She grew up in Glen Burnie, attended the University of MD College Park, married at Berea Baptist Church in the Arundel Association, then moved to this area with her husband Fred.
After raising 2 children she went to work as the office manager for the JTPA Program in Hagerstown for 5 years. The next few years she was a pathologist assistant at a medical research lab in Frederick.
In 1997 her first novel was published and she went to work as a senior editor for a local publisher. She started her own editorial service and was doing that when the position of Administrative Assistant opened up at the BRBA. All of these past job experiences seemed to lead to this point.
Mae is delighted to serve you at the BRBA and hopes to be here for a very long time.
