Mary Beth O’Neill is the President and CEO of Key Human Services, Inc. in Connecticut. She came to Key in January 1997, bringing considerable experience in the field of Individual and Family Support. Before joining Key, she developed her skills with two other nonprofits in the area of Supported Living. While pursuing her degree at Merrimack College, she demonstrated her leadership skills by organizing, advocating and lobbying for individual rights in Boston Massachusetts.
At Key, Mary Beth has honed her leadership skills and expanded the Individual and Family Support division. Recognizing the need for diversification, she identified new opportunities for growth and development, including new avenues of business such as self determination, youth transition, supported homes and in-home support. She has brought Key to the cutting edge of services, creating efficient ways to manage time and billing to make waiver work a possibility. Key was then the only provider to participate in the Autism Pilot in the North Region.
Mary Beth is committed to supporting individuals with disabilities and Key Human Services. She is a strong leader and uses her wide array of skills and experience to benefit Key and the individuals who receive services, and she has lent her talents to the Birth to Three division. She earned her master’s degree in occupational therapy and is a member of AOTA, NBCOT, CONNOTA, and a Commissioner of Inland Wetlands in Ellington, CT. Beyond her work life, she continues to act as a change agent in volunteer work as a plenary guardian and a Red Cross instructor.
