As ICS’s Director of Innovation and Inclusion, Mary leads our Social Innovation Fund-supported Pay for Success (PFS) initiative.  She also advises on the creation and implementation of strategies that are in line with the principles of equity and inclusion, and reflective of the diverse populations that we serve.  Since joining the team in March 2015, Mary has conducted multiple PFS feasibility analyses for state and local governments across the country, including deep work in home visiting through partnerships with Washington State’s Department of Early Learning and the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth.  Mary cultivated strong skillsets in stakeholder education and engagement, and early childhood research.

Mary is a native New Yorker with a passion for building equitable systems and fostering social justice through policy. She earned a BS degree and a Certificate in Justice and Peace Studies from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. She went on to complete an MS in Urban Policy Analysis and Management at Milano – New School for Urban Policy in New York City. Prior to ICS, Mary worked for National Hemophilia Foundation and College Summit.  She has also consulted on projects focused on housing policy, day care compliance, and breakfast in the classroom. Highlights of past work include guiding state advocacy initiatives, providing technical assistance to 52 regions across the country, and managing a national youth advocacy training program. Mary is thrilled to have also had the opportunity to serve with organizations such as the NAACP, AmeriCorps, and currently – at her alma mater – with The Hewitt School’s Alumnae Diversity Initiative. Mary is privileged to use this experience in policy analysis, strategic planning, and advocacy to further ICS’s mission of ensuring the success of all young children.
