Mary was born and raised in Sussex, NB. She is passionate about seeing her local community and beyond thrive. She feels the best way to help her community is to support initiatives that bring value to the area. You will often find Mary volunteering her time with local schools, sports teams, and the Rotary Club of Sussex.
When Mary is not volunteering she is working at Carleton-Fundy Mutual Insurance as a claims professional or spending time with her husband, John, and their 2 children, Hannah and William.
The McNairs also own Outdoor Elements, a local outdoor adventure store in Sussex. Each week, Outdoor Elements commits to donating to the Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick and highlights the importance of physical activity (especially in the great outdoors!) can have on stress and mental wellness. You will often find Mary and John along with their children on many outdoor adventures and leading various adventures in the Sussex and Fundy Region.
Mary is involved with WE Believe Saint John because she feels as though this is an amazing opportunity for students to be inspired. They can hear first-hand accounts from inspirational change-makers and from those that have overcome hardships. Students can learn that it only takes one person to start a movement or make a difference in the world and they could be that person!
