Mary began cultivating her passion for leadership in community service during her time as an undergraduate at McDaniel College. While earning her bachelor’s degree in history with minors in music and literature, Mary was an active member of the Zeta Sigma Chapter of Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority from 2008 to 2011 and served on her chapter’s executive committee from 2008-2010. In 2012, she was introduced to the music of Papadosio and the community surrounding it–a community that has taught her about the depth of caring and unconditional love one can have for others. After meeting Kevin in 2014, Mary’s desire to help others through community service was re-ignited, and she began volunteering with AOC a year later. A recent Asheville, NC transplant from Maryland, Mary is looking forward to continuing her journey with AOC in her new home. When she is not volunteering with AOC, Mary works as an assistant teacher at a preschool and enjoys reading, gardening, hiking, and cooking.
