Mary Kay Hoal

A proud wife and mother of five children both biological and adopted, ranging in age from 4-17 years old, Mary Kay faces the same challenges every parent does. While Mary Kay readily admits that she didn't "get" the whole online social networking phenomenon at first, she quickly recognized its importance in her kids' lives. After researching the disturbing landscape of social networking sites, including endless inappropriate content and thousands of predators targeting youth, Mary Kay's mission became clear: raise the bar.

Conceived and founded by Mary Kay, Yoursphere is the first social networking service for youth that parents can embrace. Drawing on her corporate entrepreneurial experience as a media strategist, advertising, marketing and publishing VP formerly with CMP Media LLC, Mary Kay built the Yoursphere team.
