Mary has devoted her career to people who count on public-serving organizations to make their lives better. She is skilled at figuring out why things have gone awry in an organization and helping executives and managers fix them.

Her professional through-line has been civic accountability, as a newspaper reporter, non-profit executive, performance auditor, and elected official. The hallmarks of accountability -- integrity, transparency, fairness, and courage -- guide how she works and measures her performance.

Mary is skilled in developing and managing people, strategic planning, performance management and analysis, program design for fair outcomes, risk assessment and mitigation, research and fact-gathering, administrative investigations, and written communication.

Her subject matter expertise derives from experience in state and local government, charitable organizations, and the private sector. Mary has deep experience managing or analyzing programs responsible for law enforcement policy and accountability, transportation, regional leadership, criminal and civil courts, administrative investigations and quasi-judicial hearings, public records and meetings, elections, internal services, and public policy development.
