What is your name/nicknames?
My name is Mary-Lynne. My sister has given me a nickname that is much too silly to share! But many people just call me ML. My proudest names, at the present time, are Mom and Gramma.
How would you describe your position?
Doing the behind the scenes “fun” jobs at KEEN to make sure that KEEN is on track with cash flow; bills are paid and bills are collected. I get to take the cheques to the bank and know that clients and vendors are up-to-date. That always feels good!
What are your academic credentials?
Years of experience being mentored by and working with great people. Various business college courses.
What do you do in your spare time?
Love to hike in the Edmonton river valley or the Alberta Rocky Mountains. Enjoy spending time with family, grandkids and friends. Travelling to different places in the world whenever my budget allows!
Who or what inspires you and why?
I have been blessed throughout my life to work with people who practice honesty and integrity in their personal and work values. Now working with the KEEN team of young, energetic and creative people, I continue to be inspired and enjoy each day.
Who would play you in the movie of your life?
I would love Diane Keaton to play me because she is so expressive and can make awkward situations funny. You might as well laugh at life!
How many five year olds could you take in a fight?
I know better than to fight with a five year old!
What five things are always in your fridge?
Eggs, ketchup, pickles, bread and apples – never eaten all together!
What song always makes you happy when you hear it?
“It’s a beautiful morning!!” by The Rascals always makes me smile.
