Secondary Program Director
Mary moved from New Mexico to Grand Junction in 1998. She has a degree in Elementary Education and worked as a third grade teacher for several years. She is the founder of REC and was co-Executive Director of REC with Joy for 10 years before deciding to explore other avenues. After studying abroad and earning a degree in Adult Education for Social Change, Mary worked at CU in support services for underserved students and then at CMU for the TRIO program. We are beyond excited that Mary has come full circle back to REC to share her skills with our Middle and High School programs.
