She was briefly married and divorced 10 years ago and has no interest in remarrying. Mary now spends the majority of her free time volunteering at a hospice.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
