While looking for an internship for the Fall 2018 semester, Mary Lee came across the Austin Angels website and discovered there was a leadership internship with Susan. She served as Susan's intern for a semester and came on staff as the executive assistant in January 2019. Mary Lee is passionate about foster care because it has personally impacted her family -- she has several cousins who were adopted from the foster care system. Mary Lee will earn her bachelor's degree in government in May 2019. She is a fourth generation Longhorn (Hook 'em Horns!) and an active member of her sorority, Alpha Delta Pi. She serves as a volunteer leader with YoungLife. When she's not busy working or studying, Mary Lee loves to hang out with her friends, read good books, watch rom coms, and spend time with her family. Her mom is a flight attendant and she has had the opportunity to travel to some of really incredible places, including Oman in the Middle East. Mary Lee is a quiet observer of the environment around her and an encourager to everyone she encounters.
