Mari Garner, Chief Operations Officer

A native of Mississippi, Mari and her husband, Jason, moved to TN in 2011. They are blessed with 2 children, Ashlyn and Caden who keep them on their toes. Mari is thankful to be part of the Mercy Family. To help achieve God’s will through Mercy’s mission is such a rewarding experience.

One of Mari’s favorite quotes is by Shel Silverstein: “Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.” Having over 15 years of experience in the IT field, with a primary focus in analyzing, streamlining and automating business processes, Mari enjoys unearthing the solutions to the perceived impossibilities and introducing an outcome of anything can happen, anything can be.

“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10; this scripture has guided Mari throughout her professional and personal life.
