She won the novice ladies title at the 1959 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. She later skated with Ice Follies, and was married to former U.S. pair champion Ronald Ludington, for a time. In the mid-1970s, after separating from Ludington, she began coaching at the Wagon Wheel rink in Rockton, Illinois, where her pupils included a young Scott Hamilton. It was there that she teamed up with Evy Scotvold. They coached in Janesville, Wisconsin for a time before relocating to the Boston area in 1986. They are now semi-retired and coaching part-time in Jacksonville, Florida.
Mary's twin sister Anne Batdorf Militano is also a skating coach and former competitive skater.
