Administrative Associate - Graduate School
Mary is passionate about helping Native American students at the University of Montana. To say things like "bending over backwards" or "going the extra mile," even "going above and beyond" are really insufficient in describing the passionate commitment Mary has for helping Indian students achieve at UM. She takes the time to treat each person as an individual, gets to know them, is a shoulder to cry on, a pillar in adversity, a compassionate friend, a parent, a wise co-worker, and a grandmother to our children! Mary is the hub of the Graduate School and is really a friend each and every graduate student should get to know. What an honor it is to have Mary in my life. I can't thank her enough for believing in me!
