Mary succeeds former Resident Commissioner Isaac Robinson of Lakeside Apartments, who has served on the HACA board since 2013.
Mary grew up on Rainey Street in Austin, and worked in childcare for most of her adult life. Four years ago, Mary moved into Chalmers Courts. Always looking to improve lives, Mary began attending Resident Council meetings. Within four months, she was elected president.
As Resident Council president, Mary devoted herself to helping residents learn about the resources and opportunities available to them, like Jobs Plus ATX, through which Chalmers residents can take courses and apply for jobs.
Mary also ensures that everyone knows about upcoming events, such as the always popular bingo night. As a Spanish speaker herself, Mary makes sure that Spanish-speaking residents do not let language barriers keep them from becoming involved. Residents who cannot attend meetings – often because of work or school – know they can count on Mary to keep them informed.
