The Staff

Mum as she is fondly referred to by staff and participants alike, is the brain and engine behind this little organization that could – and did!
Having dedicated her life to bettering the lives of others, Mary has been an enormous encouragement and mentor to the women and their families.  Many of the participants refer to mum as their family and credit her support as the cause of their successes.  LPK trulywould not be what it is without Mum’s dedication and hard work and above all, love.
