Mary began working with a dietitian at a young age and grew up with a first-hand understanding of how food choices impact physical and mental health. While this experience stuck with Mary throughout her teen years, she ended up pursuing a career in Geotechnical Engineering (no big deal). After 6 years in the engineering world, Mary had an epiphany: She wanted to help others the way her dietitian had helped her. That same year, she returned to school for her Master’s in nutrition and the registered dietitian credential. Mary is one of the original members of Culina Health–she’s been here since the team was a group of just 4 dietitians!
Direct, Informative, and Collaborative. Mary breaks down the science to help her patients understand how to eat (and enjoy) foods that support their blood sugar goals.
In her spare time, Mary enjoys running or hiking with her dog, Nala; practicing yoga (she’s a certified yoga instructor); playing the ukulele or piano; and learning Spanish.
