Before joining New/Mode, Mary worked for a progressive software company and supported their effort in empowering nonprofit organizations focused on social movements and issues advocacy.
Mary spent the majority of her career in K12 education, serving as a middle school teacher and in school leadership roles, and she was most passionate about improving educational equity for marginalized students.
Today, Mary is excited to be part of the New/Mode team and its mission to empower nonprofit organizations and individuals committed to civic engagement needed to propel systemic change.
During her free time, Mary enjoys spending time with her senior dog Elmo, a sweet little Shih- Tzu who would literally lick you to death if given the opportunity. She also (begrudgingly) enjoys jogging and traveling and exploring new places.
