Connect with me

For three decades Mary has provided public relations and branding services to health spas, wellness centers and related not-for-profits. Starting with a PR internship at Sheboygan Memorial Hospital in her native Wisconsin, she spent her salad days working in the dietary department at Sacred Heart Rehabilitation Hospital (Milwaukee) to earn money to move to New York City, where she honed her journalism skills before turning her focus to PR and branding. Mary was a founding board member of the International Spa Association (ISPA), New York Spa Alliance and Washington Spa Alliance, a position she continues to hold today. She has been a speaker at many spa and wellness forums and symposia. Recently, she has served as an ad hoc patient advocate at hospitals including Memorial Sloan Kettering, Mt. Sinai, and Weill Cornell in New York City. She is the 2011 recipient of the Winthrop W. Grice Award for lifetime achievement in public relations.
