ABOUT MARY CRAFTS
It’s been said, with Mary you get one-hundred percent. Building an award winning, successful company? 100% done. Do you need service on boards and committees? She’s there for you 100%. Her children and family? Yep. 100%. Her own health and fitness? She’s got that covered too. And what about HEART? How about 1,000%!!
There are many heroic people in our world, and it’s especially poignant to meet a woman who graduated cum laude from the school of life. A woman dedicated to lifting others up by sharing her stories, her insights, and the many lessons she’s learned during her journey thus far.
Mary has been involved in service all her life. From being the CEO of her company, to hosting chic black tie charity events, to shoveling gravel at an orphanage in Central America, Mary’s commitment to service runs from High Level – to rubber-meets-the road.
Mary has just returned from a rescue mission in the Ukraine organized by the Utah-based organization Exitus. This mission was life-changing for Mary as well as for the orphans and special needs children she helped transport across the border to safety in Romania where the children are now receiving care and medical attention. Mary says of the experience, “It has refocused my life’s mission. I realize now more than ever that we are all one, expressing and manifesting that oneness is my mission now.” Click here to see a KSL news clip about Mary’s experience and the Exitus mission in Ukraine https://www.ksl.com/article/50372823/utah-woman-travels-with-nonprofit-helps-orphans-escape-ukraine

UVU Conference on Domestic Violence
Mary does not shy away from sharing her personal story of surviving domestic violence and the valuable lessons learned on how not to just survive, but to thrive. After her college graduation in social work, she worked tirelessly to create Utah County’s first domestic violence shelter but little did she know that just 8 years later she would find shelter there with her two young children. Mary lifts women to understand that struggle does not equate to failure, but rather struggle is the path to growth and resilience.
