Mary was invited by a colleague to attend a Downtown Spokane Exchange Club meeting in 1996 and joined soon thereafter. She is dedicated to the community service aspect of Exchange, especially acitivities focused on youth, such as the A.C.E. awards and youth programs. She has served as Secretary and President of the Spokane club.
Mary and her husband Art have been married for 26 years and have two daughters (Mary’s step-children) and three grandchildren. Mary retired from full-time law practice about 4 years ago, and works part-time as in-house attorney for a telepharmacy services company. She serves on the Frontier Behavioral Health board and the Eastern Washington Aging and Long-Term Care advisory board, and volunteers at SCRAPS, the Spokane County regional animal protection agency (and tries not to adopt too many animals, though she and Art have three cats, all rescues.) Mary is looking forward to a busy year as NW District President!
