Mary Seeley LPN

Executive Director, Devereux Poconos

Mary Seeley has been at Devereux Pocono for 29 years, 26 of which she has served as Executive Director of Devereux Pocono Programs and Services.  Under Mary’s direction, Devereux Pocono has flourished as a solution for struggling special needs families in the Pocono Northeast.

Devereux Pocono began modestly in 1982 as a 25 bed intermediate care facility in the rural Pocono Northeast hamlet of Newfoundland, with a staff of 33.  When Mary was hired, Devereux had no affiliations with any local public and private organizations and no solid leads for growing business. Today, Devereux Pocono consists of six unique residential, training and rehabilitation programs serving hundreds of special need individuals in 12 locations.  What began with a $500,000 operating budget is currently over $11 million.  It is Mary’s prudence and innovation that has driven to Devereux Pocono’s growth and success.  Programs such as School to Work, Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services for children, and the creation of Community Homes were developed under Mary’s direction.  Mary’s determination and desire for quality programs has produced a community of hope for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

You will not see Mary take credit for these achievements.  Mary modestly reminds us “it is the staff.”  From her first days as Executive Director, Mary has been constant about rewarding and advancing her employees.  Mary was a leader in the first regional Direct Support professional credentialing program that opens new local career paths for persons working in human services.  Mary earned her Pennsylvania Nursing Home Administrator's license in 1986 and is a Licensed Practical Nurse.  She is currently completing an advanced degree in business administration at Keystone College.
