Meet the founders
Mary Elaine Baker, President + Co-Founder
Mary Elaine grew up in a loving multicultural home right outside of Savannah, Georgia. She has been immersed in a military lifestyle since birth with her father serving our country for over 30 years. She later married her husband, Brett, and entered the world of being a military spouse. Her entire life, she experienced first-hand the many challenges faced by dependents of the military. She is very familiar with the stress of having your loved one serve in the military. She and her husband Brett conceived of Patriot Advantage as a means of giving the spouses of military and public servants flexible job opportunities while meeting the needs of their clients.
When Mary Elaine isn’t cultivating strong working relationships and mentoring others, you can find her raising a family and occasionally relaxing on the beach with Brett, their two children, and a glass of Cabernet.
Brett Baker, Vice President + Co-Founder
Brett grew up in Roswell, Georgia as a very active and adventurous adolescent. His childhood was spent either on the field playing sports or exploring the pond and numerous creeks running through his parent’s property. Shortly after graduating high school, and with the country at war, Brett quickly found his calling. After 13 years of active duty service and multiple combat deployments, the military and time serving as an Army Ranger, has honed Brett’s ability to lead, manage, and execute the most demanding of tasks.
These skills have allowed Brett to excel as the Vice President of Patriot Advantage. Brett’s passion for sports and the outdoors has endured even post military retirement. In his free time you will find him fishing and playing outside with his children.
