Staffing Spotlight: Mary B. Lucas

“Lunchmeat & Life Lessons: Sharing a Butcher’s Wisdom” 

Mary Bichelmeyer Lucas always signs her name, followed by two letters: B.D. Not the usual M.D., Ph.D., or J.D. — titles of distinction that are more familiar. So what’s a B.D.? It stands for Butcher’s Daughter, she says, and it represents the best education she ever got.


Mary is the author of “Lunchmeat & Life Lessons: Sharing a Butcher’s Wisdom,” the critically acclaimed best seller she wrote as a tribute to her late father. A simple man with an 8th grade education, John Bichelmeyer lovingly taught her life’s most important lessons, which she now shares through her book and as an award-winning public speaker.


Motivational, Keynote and Commencement Speaking: Research tells us that the number one fear for most people is speaking in front of large groups. Not true in Mary’s case! She’s fearless, frank and funny, connecting with audiences because of her remarkable message and memorable delivery. She brings to life the wit and wisdom her father instilled in her, while touching the heart of every person listening.
