During her first nursing job at a children’s hospital almost two decades ago, Mary fell in love with pediatrics. She found it incredibly gratifying to nurse sick children back to health and watch them happily leave with their parents.

Considering this relationship the foundation of her practice, Mary believes that a strong rapport allows open communication between the patient and provider. She wants patients and their families to feel completely comfortable discussing any questions or concerns with her.
