Mary came to her administrative position at City Dog Country Dog after a major career change. Many of the skills that made her a standout teacher for over 20 years serve her well in her current work as Office Manager. She has been dubbed “Queen of Organization” by colleagues and friends, has a passion for designing and maintaining data bases, and loves managing the behind the scenes details that support the vision, mission, trainers, and clients of City Dog Country Dog. For many years, Mary was partnered by an amazing hearing dog, Suzanne II (Suzi), from Canine Companions for Independence. Mary often says that deafness may have clipped her wings but Suzi gave them back.
