Mary earned both her bachelor’s (‘86) and master’s (’88) in health education from A&M. She has spent more than 30 years in post- acute and long-term health care as an administrator and consultant. Most recently, she worked at Generations Center for Senior Living in Bryan as administrator and project consultant on its re-development. Currently, she is pursuing a master’s degree in bioethics at Creighton University. She hopes to utilize the knowledge gained from the program to aid in her philanthropic work in health care and education. In 2020 that service included being on the Baylor Scott and White Advisory Board as Co-Chair, the Baylor Scott and White Central Texas Foundation Board, and the College Station ISD Education Foundation Board.
