Mary Evans | Program Director

Traditions at North Willow

Meet Mary Evans, Traditions' Featured Employee of the Month! Mary was born and raised in Marion, Indiana, and has been the Program Director for Traditions at North Willow for five years.

"When I'm not working, I love spending time with my husband, Jim, and our four children. I also really enjoy teaching fitness classes," said Mary.

When we asked Mary if she had hidden talents, she smiled and said, "I've been a professional singer for over 20 years."

From cruise ships to professional theater, Mary has appeared throughout South Florida, including performing the National Anthem for the Miami Dolphins and Miami Heat. She toured with The Swing Sisters in a "Tribute to the Andrew Sisters" for over a decade and gained a love for American Songbook standards.

Last year, Mary donated her talent to help raise money for the fight against Alzheimer's Disease. She and her co-star, Ashley Nicole, performed a sold-out concert, "Music to Remember," at The Cat Theatre in Carmel, Indiana.

"I love making people smile and laugh," said Mary. "It's just one of the things I love about my job at North Willow. I particularly remember the smile on one resident's face when I took him to the Art Museum, where he used to volunteer. He was so thrilled to see the Van Gogh exhibit and visit with old friends. Another thing I love about Traditions is the way we honor and respect our military veterans."

"Mary is nothing less than amazing," exclaimed Libby Mellinger, Traditions Area Vice President of Operations. "The passion and commitment she shows every day is just simply incredible. Mary continuously thinks outside the box to ensure every North Willow resident benefits from our social model. Our residents rave about her and are beside themselves when she is out of the office. She is an intricate part of our management team and keeps us all on our toes. Her energy level, smile, enthusiasm, and love are contagious. She makes Traditions at North Willow an amazing place to be every day!"
