Every day when we listen to the PDS answering machine we are sure to hear, "Hello this is Mary..." Mary calls PDS all the time to let us know what she might need help with or to tell us how she did at work that day. She is a woman who knows what she wants and is excellent at making sure her needs are met.
Mary organizes her life really well. She works in the produce department at Whole Foods Market and lives independently (with support from Lifehouse organization) and manages all of her doctor's appointments and social events such as traveling to visit her family members. Mary has three loving brothers who look out for their little sister and it is obvious how much she is loved. Mary has a strong sense of self and is as mature and "street smart" as she is sweet, vulnerable and childlike. PDS feels very privileged to have the opportunity to work with someone who is so interesting and impressive.
