Our April Harman Center Volunteer of the Month is Mary Jepsen. She is originally from Kansas. She moved to Yakima for something different. She has one daughter, one son, and a grandson. She worked for 20 years in Public Relations and 20 years as an Occupational Therapist. She enjoys water coloring, gardening, and napping. She stated that “all people should have naps regardless of what age they are.”
Mary began volunteering at the Harman Center 3 years ago. She started volunteering due to being retired and wanted to continue pursuing an occupation. She is the Secretary for the Yakima Valley Senior Citizens, Inc. and helps with a variety of duties for the organization as well as special events. She enjoys volunteering because it gives her purpose. She is patient, inquisitive, and has a great sense of humor. Come on down to the Harman Center and meet Mary, as well as some of our other Volunteer All-Stars.
