What Mary does at the Foundation: 

As a Senior Officer on the Community Engagement team, Mary’s work centers around the health and wellness initiatives of both the Community Foundation and Jenkins Foundation. In addition to facilitating the grant application process for both organizations, Mary plays a strategic part in identifying community needs and solutions in the health field. Her role provides the opportunity to learn about the local health landscape as she interacts with nonprofit organizations across our community.

Mary’s prior work experience with Department of Health & Services provided a foundation of knowledge in health and early childhood policies. She looks forward to putting her expertise into practice as she collaboratively helps advance the Foundation's health and wellness goals.


When Mary's not working:

She can be found spending time outside with her husband, Nick, and adorable Boston terrier mix, Oscar. Mary tries to walk everywhere she can, making her home in the Fan a convenient location for walking to restaurants and shops. She loves to cook but also appreciates the thrill of visiting a new Richmond restaurant!
