Mary B. Adams

Board Member 2018

I am so proud to be a part of the PLANCTX Board and am looking forward to working with my fellow Board members, staff and clients.

I am the mother of 2 grown daughters and have been married for 46 years to my husband, John. I have recently retired from Austin Independent School District after 32 years of service in Purchasing and Athletics. Prior to working in AISD, I was the manager of a mini storage company and worked for an insurance company. The common thread in all of my jobs has been public service. It has always been important to me to be “user friendly” with my clients, co-workers and the public.

In my private life, I have always been a volunteer. I was PTA president for 2 years at my daughters’ elementary school and served as PTA secretary at the elementary and high school level. I have volunteered with CASA of Travis County and NAMI Austin and with several other school and work related activities.

I first heard about PLANCTX through NAMI when I took the Family to Family course and was very interested in the work being done to help the families and individuals facing mental health challenges as is my family. One of my goals after retirement was to start giving back to my community and PLANCTX is my first step. I am so appreciative for this opportunity.
