About Mary

Mom, United Methodist Deacon Candidate, wife, social justice advocate, writer, tv-watcher, avid reader.

I was married in July 2004 to my college sweetheart, Martin, and my son, Jude, was born May 2010.

 I love being a Mom and Wife.

I also love the work I do. I am a certified candidate for ordination in the United Methodist Church, focusing on outreach through social justice, as a deacon serving in the world. I currently work at at a Presbyterian Church as director of missions and congregational care, a job I came to after three years as the assistant director of a homeless housing program.My heart breaks for those dealing with homelessness and my specialization is working with homeless families to help them get a fresh start in life. My current project is the formation of a “one stop shop” for social service needs in my county.
