Mary Nelson

Mary began working at New Haven in 2014 as a staff in the Rosa Parks house. Since that time, she has been an Assistant Supervisor, and Supervisor, prior to becoming the Residential Director of the Susan B. Anthony House. One of the things she loves most about working at New Haven is building meaningful relationships with the girls and being a part of their healing journey. She finds it so fulfilling to watch a girl and her family move through the program and transition home happy and whole.

Mary was born and raised in South Jordan, Utah. She is the youngest of nine children, having two older sisters and six older brothers, whose ages span thirty years. Mary graduated in 2002 from Utah State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Graphic Design. Mary is married and has three children, one boy and two daughters. Mary loves spending time with her family. She enjoys taking pictures of their adventures whether playing in the park, visiting the zoo or fishing. Of course, she puts that Graphic Design degree to great use by creating fun filled scrapbooks for her children to enjoy for years to come. Her creativity does not stop there, as she enjoys creating clothes for her daughters to wear.
