Mary has been a therapist for over a decade. Mary treats with a holistic approach, not just treating the symptom but finding the source of the dysfunction. She is manual therapist with strong Myofascial Release skills acquired through training with John Barnes.
Early in her career, while treating in a traditional orthopedic setting, Mary felt that there was a treatment piece missing. That is when she began her journey in pelvic health. She has experience in treating males and females, abdominal and pelvic pain, pregnant and post partum, as well as extensive knowledge of the oncological effects of the pelvic floor.
Mary enjoys volunteering for the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), where she works creating training modules for continuing education courses. As much as she loves being a therapist, her most proud accomplishment has been becoming a mother. “The human body is beyond amazing!”
