SHARE Omaha is honored that our Community Partnerships Manager, Mary Talen, saved her best for last. From day one in November 2018, Mary shaped the launch of our community connection platform by recruiting and managing so many crucial relationships.
Mary Talen has announced her plans to retire at the end of the year, and we know her retirement will be the beginning of an "even better" chapter.
In just three years, Mary and SHARE Omaha have accomplished much and Mary has been key to growth from the very beginning.
