    Mary Norman, MPS, PHR, SHRM=CP
    Chapter President

    Lake City, CARC

    I am Mary Norman, a native Floridian born in Hollywood. I have lived in the North Florida area since moving here with my family in 1999. I have spent most of my career in the healthcare system working for Shands Lake Shore in various positions including Pharmacy, Case Management, Risk Management/Medical Staff Services, Human Resources and lastly as the Supervisor of Plant Ops and Emergency Management.  When our hospital was closed in 2020, I made the move to my current position as HR Director for CARC. We are a non-profit who serves adults with disabilities in Columbia and surrounding counties. I am a graduate of St Leo University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Healthcare Administration. Human Resources is a passion and I find satisfaction with my work as I enjoy helping others and being able to provide a positive influence for employees. I also love problem solving and experiencing the diverse roles and responsibilities that my career demands. I find my role at CARC very rewarding as I work with others to grow our organization into a viable community resource. When I am not working, I enjoy being outdoors in the Florida sunshine with family and friends. I also relish reading a good book and working out at the gym in my spare time.

    Hannah Jones

    Hi I’m Hannah! I lived most of my life in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC. I relocated to Jacksonville Florida to pursue my career further within the HR community. I appreciate spending time outside doing yoga, journaling, meditation & on the weekends finding a new local brunch spot! My daily routine is focused on my personal development to achieve internal fulfillment, which I firmly believe is so valuable throughout life.I am passionate about helping others expand their growth potential (personally & professionally). I spend every day of my career supporting leaders to be an advocate for change within their workforce. The Paycor family has afforded me the opportunity to develop my passion by allowing me to build such valuable relationships with all different types of leaders. One of the top reasons that I chose Paycor is because I needed to work with a company that values team culture & personal development as much as I do... I’m proud to say that I am a part of a team that exceeds that expectation every single day!
