Mary grew up on a small farm in NH, and was a member of 4-H, active in many projects including animal science (poultry, goat, dog and horse), cooking, sewing, communications, and more. She graduated from UNH with a B.S. in Animal Science, later earning an A.S. from NHTI in Emergency Medicine (Paramedic) and an M.S. in Management from New England College. She and her husband and two children were very involved in 4-H as the children grew up. Mary is thrilled to be working with 4-H and Animal Science.
