Pronounced like “parade with an M,” Mairead loves all things nautical, Vineyard-y, and Irish (in case the name didn’t give it away). She can often be found bopping around L Street with her Southie framily, testing out the local nacho scene, and running marathons strictly for the post-race beverages.
