Mother of one, optimistic and interested in enriching her career, she manages to balance her career and life responsibilities and often squeezes in time to take a course or two in gerontology studies. Currently she is following a Certified Training programme in “Counselling, Life Coaching and Mentoring” at the University of the Aegean. Mary loves to travel and enjoy life, “I always believed that it’s nice to surround myself with people who seem to make life as beautiful as it is, so I try to stay positive, enjoy every moment with people I love and always look at the bright side of life!” She is also a Commissioner of Oath for Quebec, for the Minister of Justice (#212989 valid until 2018).
