Mary Mizer joined the Woodland Palms community as Administrator in 2020, bringing over a decade of varied experience in social services and a genuine passion for helping improve the quality of life of others.
Having been raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania, one of Mary’s earliest childhood memories is of picking blueberries and baking muffins with her grandmother. “My whole life I’ve always felt a strong connection with elders”. As a US Navy Veteran, she enjoys a unique bond with residents who have also served. Mary earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from University of Maryland University College, completing most of her coursework while living overseas. She finds this career to be fulfilling, meaningful, and significant and can’t imagine working in anything other than a helping profession.
In her spare time, Mary is kept busy by her two young daughters, Alyssa and Katherine. She enjoys baking, reading, and visiting the gym.
