Mary Dunn

Project Manager & Interior Designer

When I was first introduced to Patti, Julia, and Team Taste several years ago, I knew their design firm was something special. At the time, I was working as a Senior Project Manager for a luxury construction firm and had the opportunity to work with Taste and their client on a custom home. Taste's keen attention to detail matched my own, and I knew I had found like-minded collaborators in Team Taste.

As my career continued to develop, I joined a real estate development firm, where I enjoyed leading commercial projects through all phases of development in the multi-unit residential and hospitality sectors. However, I always felt a pull to return to residential design; the deep connection that comes from working closely with clients is an incredibly fulfilling experience. When I learned Taste was hiring, I knew it was meant to be, and I'm thrilled to be a part of this collaborative team of smart, driven, and genuinely kind women.

I hold a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Boston Architectural College. I live in Newport with my husband, Chris Dunn, an architect with Greenwater Architects, our young son, and our canine family member, Izzy. We love taking advantage of all Newport has to offer.
