Director of Admissions
Mary was raised in Portland, Oregon and ventured north for college. While at UAF, she earned a BA in Communication and played basketball for the Nanooks. After a stint as a research intern in D.C., Mary spent the next few years traveling the world and earning a master’s degree in English. After several years as an adjunct instructor in the Pacific Northwest, she returned home to Fairbanks to work in Admissions.
Mary can often be found cheering on the Nanooks at a sporting event or attending a concert on campus. She adores the aurora and is slowly becoming more proficient at cross country skiing on the 27 km of UAF ski trails. She doesn’t drink coffee – only tea, preferably English breakfast or Earl Gray.
