An Oregon Medicaid Agency Supporting Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities


Direct Support Professional


Hello there! My name is Mary, and I would love to meet you! I am a retired Army National Guard Veteran with 20 years of service. I was deployed to Iraq during my time and did an annual training in Iceland. I currently work for the Reynolds School District as an educational assistant in the Special Needs program. This year I am working with high school students in the behavioral classroom.

I have several hobbies, some of which are actually useful! I am learning how to can my own food, along with dehydrating food. I like to read books, take nature walks (I used to hike a lot, but physical issues prevent me from taking long hikes), ride horses, and do some crafting (mostly ceramics, but I haven’t done that in a while). I love learning, (I have a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Sciences with a minor in Agribusiness) so I am willing to try new things. I like going to museums and antique stores because I enjoy history plus there are some cool things to see in those places!
