While renowned across the Northwest, there are places in this country where we suspect many of you have not heard of Mary, but she is one of the most influential and important people in the Employment 1st and inclusion movement. Mary had this vision long before the term Employment 1st was ever spoken, and she used her strong ethical and values foundation to guide her county in local systems change.
