Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB: Mary is one of the MOST positive, energetic, warm, empathetic caring and talented people I know. She believes endlessly in people and puts her time and talents into making the world better. A lot of her work now focuses on the prevention of child sexual abuse but she has worked for children and families in multiple capacities. She lives and breathes the essence of a community builder and is AMAZING!!
