MaraMara Wiles was born in Maryland, or as she likes to call it, Maraland.  That's where she developed her self-proclaimed East Coast edge.  Her family moved to Colorado when she was in 3rd grade and she's been here ever since.  Mara graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder Journalism School with a degree in Broadcast News and a minor in History.  You won't see her on the local news (or the History channel for that matter) but she does get plenty of public face time here at Impulse Theater where she's usually parodying newscasters or spouting inaccurate historical information.
