Mary was born and raised on a farm in Illinois. Her family always had dogs, cats, and cattle on the farm. Her love of animals and medicine brought her to the field of veterinary technology. She went to a two-year junior college and moved to Phoenix, where she lived and worked in veterinary medicine for 17 years. Mary has been a veterinary technician since 1984 and can’t think of any other job she would rather do. In 2018, she decided that being a client services representative was what she enjoyed and decided to be AFAEC’s first receptionist.
After her nephew, Paul was born Mary decided to move to Grapevine so she could be near him. When not at work Mary likes to hike, work out at the gym, and go to her nephews’ baseball games. In addition to her physical activities, Mary is an avid reader. In fact, if there was a “Readers Anonymous” club, she could very possibly be the president! Mary is also very involved with her church and partakes in both community charity efforts and mission trips. Her human family consists of a sister who lives in Phoenix and a sister, brother-in-law, and nephew who reside in Grapevine.
