During Mary’s 18 year career within Hospital Sisters Health System, also a ministry of the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis, she has worked in various positions including, most recently, as a Human Resources Administrative Assistant. She joined Mission Outreach in September 2014. Mary’s years of experience as an Administrative Assistant have benefited Mission Outreach with her ability to organize and maintain efficient and effective workflow for the organization. She has strong problem-solving and analytical skills which enable her to quickly troubleshoot issues that arise.
Mary selected Joy as the Core Value that she is most passionate about. She believes that by celebrating joy, even in the small moments that may be surrounded by despair, we are reminded of what is possible. “I usually find the days in which I feel the least joy are the days I have to work the hardest to find it. But in my experience, by making the choice daily to acknowledge and celebrate the little things, it allows space to create more joy. In this situation – more really is better.”
