She works tirelessly and enthusiastically as the CEO of @MEND, one of the most comprehensive and effective non-profit agencies in Los Angeles County. She is always in motion – hands waving as she talks, blonde hair bouncing as she walks swiftly down the halls between the clothing store and food bank.
She will disarm you with her charm and then amaze you with encyclopedic grasp of programs, facts, figures and methods to maximize MEND’s reach into the community. Her staff is loyal and inspired by her leadership. I am a bit biased – but I find her delightful and exactly what the community needs.
Congratulations Marianne and Carolyn.
