Mary Riley is an inaugural member of Impact 100 Jersey Coast. She has been fully involved in Impact since the beginning by chairing for 5 years either the Children and Families or the Health and Wellness Grant Review Committees.

Mary graduated from Villanova University and has recently retired from Deloitte as a Managing Director. In the early 1990s, Mary was an inaugural Board Member of the New Jersey Chapter of the AG Bell Association for the Deaf – As a parent of a deaf child, she knew it was important to start a local chapter that would help our members meet the daily challenges of living with hearing loss.

Mary is a proud mother of two grown children, Jason and Kelsey. Since moving to Long Branch in 2007, Mary spends her free time enjoying the beautiful beaches, local arts/music scene and riding her bike. Through her involvement in Impact, she now feels a part of the fabric of Monmouth County.

"It has been a privilege working with the amazing Impact women. I am awe-struck with the dedication of the non-profits serving our community. It is extremely rewarding to feel the excitement and gratitude of the non-profits when they are awarded a grant."
