Mary has been a registered nurse for 10 years. She received her Bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Texas at Arlington. She began her nursing career working in Hospice care, but for the past 6 years has worked in a primary care clinic with a specialty focus on HIV-positive patients. She enjoyed working in both hospice and in primary care because it gave her a chance to get to know her patients and establish trusting relationships with them.
Mary lived in Austin, TX for 17 years before moving to Eugene in November 2017. She enjoys cross stitch, coloring and hula hooping! Mary is also learning how to play guitar in her free time, although she’s not quite enjoying it yet!
Mary feels so fortunate to have found Healing Spirit. It is unlike any nursing job she has ever had before. Before becoming an RN, Mary was a licensed massage therapist and has found the best of both worlds here at Healing Spirit as one of our lymphedema massage nurses! She loves that Healing Spirit is an independent clinic, which gives her the ability to spend significant time with her patients.
