PEEC volunteer is a bonafide outdoor person

By Gina Velasquez

Mary Carol Williams grew up loving the outdoors. A feeling that has remained instilled in her all of her life.
Williams has lived in Los Alamos since 1972, when her husband took a job working on polymers and graphite for nuclear reactors at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. She worked as an environmental chemist at the lab until her retirement in 2002.
“Through that job, I got a lot of experience with all the different facets of the lab,” she said.
Before moving to the southwest, Williams lived on a lake in Virginia when she was young.
“There were a lot of ducks, fish, birds and all those good things,” she said. “I would paddle my canoe to visit my friend on the other end of the lake. Everyone played outside, so I’ve always been an outdoor person. We didn’t have TVs. As a consequence, I have been very active all my life in nature-related things.”
Williams was involved with Girl Scout troops and camps since I was very young. I continued as a Girl Scout leader after moving to Los Alamos. She stopped to focus on her job at the lab.
Williams remains fond of the oceans and said that she and her husband love to scuba dive. She has been diving along both United States coast, several spots in the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and South America.
