I am a 46-year-old who graduated from the U. of Puget Sound with a degree in Occupational Therapy, practicing 15 years with the geriatric population which is my passion. I'm experienced in in skilled nursing facilities, home health care, outpatient clinics and memory care; working with a variety of diagnosis including Strokes, Dementia/Alzheimers, total hip and knee replacements, back surgeries, Parkinsons, cardiac conditions and more. I am highly skilled in teaching ADLs: dressing, toileting, bathing, meal prep, medication management and community reentry. I also specialize in therapeutic exercise, transfer/mobility training, balance and coordination, and family training, home modifications to increase safety and accessibility. I took a break from practicing OT a have spent the last three years caring for loved ones with dementia and found that my passion is caring for people 1:1. I'm looking forward to sharing an experience caring for your loved one and your family.

Mary was very knowledgeable about medical diagnosis, mobility, medication and how to move my mom who was incapacitated for a short time after surgery. Mom recovered but had a stoke a few months later. Mary helped us through this and mom now can manage so much more on her own. We are so thankful for her help and would recommend her again and again!
