Miss Mary – Executive Director

“A great place where magic happens.” This is the description Miss Mary gives of the Hobe Sound Child Care Center, and her passion for the organization is apparent in everything she says and does.

The Executive Director of the center since 1993, Miss Mary holds a Bachelor’s degree in Education from Walsh University in Ohio. Prior to taking the position as head of the center, she gained management experience from her career in banking. Her unique combination of management and education attracted the Board to her, and she was attracted to the staff and parents that she met here.

“HSELC gets in your blood,” she says of her long tenure.“ The staff really cares about the children and the parents. Our reward is the heartfelt gratitude the parents express as they see how well prepared their children are and how the children shine as they enter school after their experience with us.”

HSELC is, she says, “a very cool place.”
