Although born and raised in the Atlanta area, Mary has always had a passion for other cultures as well as helping people. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in International Affairs from Kennesaw State University and later became certified in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). With first-hand knowledge of the immigration process after her marriage to an immigrant and years of experience as an immigration paralegal elsewhere, she knows how difficult it can be and wants to help make the system better and fairer for all people.
In her free time, she enjoys the outdoors, dancing, and travelling. She has made it a point to travel as often as she can and experience as much of the world as possible. She hopes to use her experiences to create better understanding between people.
