Mary Schulman

Snikiddy founder, Mary Owings Schulman, serves as the head of marketing for the company, overseeing all marketing programs and initiatives, strategic planning, product and recipe development, and more.

Prior to creating Snikiddy, Schulman spent 10 years working in the finance industry. During this time she became a mother and grew increasingly concerned about children’s health, since childhood obesity and diabetes in America continued to rise at an alarming rate. Especially as a mother, it became clear to Mary that the poor quality of foods kids were eating, especially snack foods that contained high fructose corn syrup, was a large part of the problem. In 2007 Mary decided to become part of the solution and partnered with her mother, Janet Owings, to create Snikiddy, a company that produces delicious, appealing snacks that promote good health.

Mary graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.S. in business finance. Mary is a self-taught expert in healthy living for kids. She currently resides in Washington, DC with her husband and three young children. She is very involved in her children’s school, is an avid reader, and enjoys trail runs and being active outside.
