Through her work at Street Health Community Nursing Foundation, Mary-Kay works tirelessly at eradicating assumptions and stereotypes around both drug users and sex workers. By taking on a peer-based approach to her work, Mary-Kay has created a system that quickly reaches clients efficiently and empowers them to redefine themselves as coordinators and mentors within the programs. Mary-Kay continually works toward creating a delivery of service that encourages and incorporates ideas of every member of the community.
