Mascaro was hired by Catholic Charities in 1998 as a Family Life Educator and has since worked directly in the following programs:

In addition to her general responsibilities at Catholic Charities, Mascaro serves as a Board Member for Catholic Healthcare Integration Network, a Local Board Member of Emergency Food and Shelter Program, a Peer Reviewer for National Council on Accreditation, and is a Licensed Member of the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health. She also serves on the organizational Risk Management Committee, OPPS Committee, Strategic Implementation Team, and Ethics Committee.
