Mary Medley

Chief Executive Officer
What doesn't Mary do? As part of the Board of Directors, she helps shape the future of the COCPA. Have a question about State Board rules or what the Colorado Department of Revenue is up to? Mary is your go-to. She is your chief on legislative issues as well as state and national initiatives. 

I'm most known around the office for being very, very, very, very, very (did I mention very?) particular. 

My biography would be called "More to Come."

If she doesn't have the answer she will “Google” the rest of the staff for you for information. 

I'm most known around the office for... working the hardest of everyone, of course! 

If someone wrote my biography, it would be called "Her Prom Pictures Were Taken in the Family Room: Tales from Growing Up in a Funeral Home."
