Mary Schuurman

A longtime resident of Edmonton’s northeast, Mary makes her home near the same area in which she spent her grade-school years. Even as a child, she appreciated cultural diversity, especially enjoying costume, dance, music, food, and personal accounts about families and cultural experiences.

Mary comes with decades of not-for-profit experience in administration, finance (payroll, accounts payable), and Human Resources. She truly enjoys the development of structure, processes, procedures, and policy. She approaches these and all other things (like relationships, revamping old clothes, and gardening) with her motto in life, which is to “leave things better than I found them.”
