featured serrior - Mary Williams

The wonderful Mary Williams is the featured serrior for the month of June. Mary works at KidZone.

At KidZone, she checks the kids in and out, puts bracelets on them, announces the games, answers the phone, but her favorite part is that she gets to play with the kids. She has worked for Club Northwest for about 1.5 years, November will be her two-year anniversary. Before she worked at the club, she was a stay at home mommy, and she has occupied many roles in the restaurant business, such as cook, waitress and cashier. She has also previously worked at Duro-Last, which is a company that does roofing manufacturing. She also worked in fast food and enjoyed it because of the fast-paced environment, saying that her speed is “1,000 miles per minute.” Maybe that’s why the kids love you so much Mary! You can keep up with them!

The most challenging part of her job is when the kids get sick and the most rewarding part to her are the relationships she builds with the kids and getting to know the members that bring in the kids. She also really likes seeing members out and about in the community when the kids run up to her and say, “Hey, I know you!!” The kids draw her pictures sometimes, which she adores. Mary finds a lot to be rewarding at KidZone.

In her spare time, she is with her kids, taking them to concerts and sporting events. Her kids are very involved in extra-curricular activities. She is currently an orchestra, band, softball, baseball, soccer and, when in season, a track mom. This is a testament to Mary, and why the kids and members adore her so much, she is always putting others before herself.

Something you may not know about Mary is that she is a huge New England Patriots fan. And when Mary was asked what job she could have if she could have any job in the world, she said she would be a stay at home mom. This didn’t surprise us in the least. All of her free time is spent with her family. They are either taking fun trips to the beach or she is hanging out with her kids at the mall. She also said that if she could get paid to travel she would love the opportunity but that her kids would have to come with her wherever she goes. That includes the Patriots’ games.

Thank you, Mary, for bringing your joyful spirit to Club Northwest. We see your heart every time we see you, and we appreciate how much joy you bring to those around you.
