Get To Know Me


Hello my name is MJ, also known as Mary Jane, and I am the newest member of the iMAD team. I am so excited about getting to equip children with the tools they will need to not only survive but thrive. They say if you do what you love then you never work a day in your life and I believe that is completely true. I absolutely love teaching kids about healthy relationships and life skills in general.

I am from Chicago, Illinois. Before I came to Highlands County, I got to travel around quite a bit as a teenager. I experienced a plethora of diverse cultures and atmospheres along the way. It was a blessing to have learned from those many experiences, perspectives, and values I encountered. Professionally I have worked in many fields including technology, retail, and helping families get the mortgage assistance they needed. I have also enjoyed doing volunteer work with some local non-profits in Highlands County. Serving my community is something that has always been really important to me and I can’t wait to continue to do this in a new way with iMAD. I have two wonderful children who motivate me to never stop growing – and to never grow up – and a passion for life that just won’t quit.

        




Some of the things I am mad about are reading, games (mostly table top), and anything I can learn from. For as far back as I can remember I absolutely loved escaping whatever was going on in everyday life to go on an adventure with a good novel or comic or an epic quest in a D&D campaign.
