Board Member Spotlight 

In this month's Board Member Spotlight we feature Mary Jane Mapes. 

Time on board: Four years

Position on board: member; chair of this year’s Women’s Match Maker Breakfast

Place of employment: Self employed Author, Professional Speaker, Consultant and Coach

Title: Founder and President of The Aligned Leader Institute, LLC

Why do you support Big Brothers Big Sisters?: I support BBBS for two specific reasons:
1.Because I believe that every child who is in need of an additional role model and a caring member of the community deserves the kind of life-changing friendship that BBBS offers.
2. Our BBBS organization, a highly efficient non-profit, is run by an exceptionally skilled team who are able to provide a proven track record of success.

Fun fact about me: Most people would not look at me and guess that I enjoy riding horses; in fact, I was selected as one of the six (out of 40 or 50) best riders to go on a cattle round up at Drowsy Water Ranch in Colorado.

Words you live by: With God, all things are possible.

Thank you, Mary Jane, for changing lives with Big Brothers Big Sisters!
