Mary Phillips Smith

Assistant Brand Manager, Customer Engagement

Mary Phillips is a Tally local, tennis player, and bona fide straight shooter. Starting at Lucky Goat Coffee in 2018, she manages all our donation requests, special events, website, and café aesthetic (among many other things). Having such a variety of tasks and responsibilities constantly keeps her on the move, which she admits is a nice pace. Her favorite part of the job is interacting with all the faces who come in and out of Lucky Goat, whether it be our staff or our coffee-craving customers—a true people person. Before coffee, MP was working in campus ministry, where she was still putting cream and sugar in her coffee. Lately though, she’s become quite the expert on each of the single origins, ordering each one we offer while undoubtedly asking you how your day is. When she’s not busy keeping our company afloat, she’s spending time with friends, family, or Mother Nature when the weather allows.
