Mary retired from Allegiance Health in 2016 after 38 years of service in the clinical laboratory. She spent several years as a "bench technologist" before becoming a lab manager and finally ending her career as the lab billing and project specialist. Mary and her husband Bill have 3 sons and 10 grandchildren (plus one on the way!) with whom they love to spend time. Her interests include travel, bicycling, kayaking, camping, Nordic skiing, gardening, dogs, and sewing with girlfriends. Mary also spends time mentoring at a local elementary school, working with the Jackson County Master Gardeners and serving on the hospitality team at her church.
