Mary Friend grew up in Indianapolis. She started her "career" in community engagement by volunteering with her mom at a local blood bank, helping to hand out orange juice and cookies to blood donors. She attended IUPUI and continued her service work with Alpha Phi Omega, a service fraternity. These experiences led her to pursue a career in volunteer administration. In her role at the Ronald McDonald House Mary has been a key community partner, hosting Sam H Jones Community Service Scholars for many years.
