Mary is the media relations and communications coordinator for the City of Fort Worth water utility, where she has worked for over 26 years. She confesses that before she took this job she knew nothing about water and admits to taking it for granted. That all changed, and she now considers herself a water nerd.
During her career with Fort Worth Water, she has overseen internal and external communications, media relations, crisis communications and public involvement.
Mary served as chair of the American Water Works Association’s Public Affairs Council, and on the AWWA Board of Directors and Executive Committee from 2018 to 2021. She now serves on the AWWA Board of directors as director-at-large.
A native of New Orleans, Mary has a journalism degree from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, now Texas State University.
