Judicial Committee Member
Mary served as a US Navy intelligence officer for 26 years (starting in August of 1979). This included 10 tours of duty on both land and sea, in the US and abroad. She learned leadership and experienced the challenge of working in a diverse community – that you have to overcome differences to accomplish the mission. Also in the military she got the opportunity to travel and experience life in different countries. Through those experiences she gained a greater appreciation for freedoms that unfortunately some people in the United States (including those in our government) take for granted: rule of law, equality, self-government, and freedom of speech, freedom of religion, property and contract. Mary retired in August of 2005 with the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer.
