Mary’s Bio

I am a middle-aged woman that loves interacting, bonding and enriching other people's lives. I love arts and crafts, walks in the park or trails, library, church, movies and other community outings. I have lived in Austin for 8 years now, and before that, I lived in Denton, TX for 28 years.

I have 15+ years of experience working with children and adults with Intellectual developmental disorder. I have worked full time as a Special Ed. Teacher Asst. for 17 years at Denton ISD and Round Rock ISD public schools. I worked as a Direct Care worker part-time in several Denton group homes, I provided respite care for children 4-11 after school in my former home in Denton. I also worked as a caregiver/companion for the elderly in their homes in Round Rock for over a year. I am currently a Host Home provider/companion for (1) senior person with Intellectual developmental disorder. I am CPR/First Aid certified, had TB test, a clean driving record and my own transportation.
