Few have touched the lives of as many people as Mary.  From an early age she naturally was drawn to serve others through caring for her little brother John. Her caring nature led to a lifelong passion for service through healthcare.  First as an EMT for Danbury and Newtown Ambulance and as a Firefighter for Dodgingtown Fire Department. She later saw the opportunity to help even more people by furthering her education. She first became a Nurse, Nurse Practitioner, Sexual Assault Nurse, Licensed Aromatherapist, and Doctor of Nurse Practitioner.
