This Monday we are giving a shoutout to Mary Parker, the Research Administrator of Grants and Contracts Management here at the Center for Foodborne Illness Research and Prevention!
It's important to recognize and give kudos where it is long overdue. And having joined the CFI Team, well over a year ago, we want to highlight Mary’s commitment and vital role on projects budgets and financials for the TARTARE, Chakula Salama, and FAIRE research projects, to name a few.
Mary has spent the last twenty years working in various areas of community leadership; dedicating her time to working with groups such as military spouses and the Girl Scouts of America. Mary has worked as a Certified Public Accountant for Ravid & Bernstein, served as a Senior Tax Accountant for Ernst & Young, was a supervisor for Strothman & Company, and volunteered as an income tax assistant for military soldiers, dependents, and civilians overseas. Mary has ample experience supervising audit teams, preparing tax returns, and performing various functions of audit, review, and compilations at a variety of industry levels. We are glad to have Mary Parker in the role of Research Administrator of Grants and Contracts Management at CFI.
