Mary Kay Tusinac | Vice President
"The best part of my job is knowing that I change people's lives for the better, and helping them fulfill their life's dreams with no limits or boundaries".

Mary Kay Tusinac is the Vice President of Turning Point Residential and along with Kathy Phillips, she had a dream to better the lives of anyone she could help. In April of 2001, in a small upstairs room in Kathy's house, she began to work with her sister in an attempt to create a business that could change the lives of many for the better. 12 years later, that dream is still strong in her heart and soul, and from hard work and a mind set on giving, many people's lives have been enriched. From humble beginnings working in retail, Mary Kay knew that she always wanted to be an activist and help in the DD community. "I [Mary Kay] always knew working for this community was my calling. Even as a young child I dreamt of someday being a Special Education teacher". But, life brought her a different path and after having raised two children and being married for 30+ years to her loving husband Tod, she was given the opportunity to make her vision a reality. Hard work and perseverance has paid off, and now everyday she works in her dream job, being an activist for the individuals from the community, and never turning anyone down as their provider.
