I've served on the Alumnae Board of my high school, Salem Academy and am a Sustaining Member of the Junior League of Jacksonville.
My husband Bill and I have been happily married for 28 years & our son Parker is a recent graduate of the University of Alabama. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, entertaining and needlepoint.

Mary Beth Marzec
My name is Mary Beth Marzec and I am the Media Specialist at Grace.This is my twentieth year at the school and I have loved every minute of it. I started out as the P.E. teacher while my children were young, and then I went back into the classroom where I taught second grade for many years. I took last year off to regroup and tend to my family. This past year I did a lot of substitute teaching in the classroom and worked in Extended Day, which allowed me to stay connected with the children, whom I truly love.
I have a B.S. degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. I have taught Preschool through Eighth grade students throughout my teaching career.
Physical Education Instructor

My name is Lucy Vincent. I am a Preschool Teaching Assistant, and I also work in the Extended Day Program.
I have been at Grace for 19 years, and in that time I have been a teacher assistant in the 3 and 4 year old classrooms, substitute, and I have always worked in extended day. I am a member of Grace Episcopal Church, and my two sons attended Grace Day School.
So happy to be a part of the "Grace Family"!
In my free time I love spending time at the beach with my family, walking on River Road, and cooking!
