Mary is our Outpatient Diabetes Class Educator for some of our off-site locations. She also sees patients at our Long Beach location once a week.  She is a Registered Dietitian and a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) who earned her Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition from Pepperdine University.  She also completed her post-graduate internship at Oregon Health Sciences University.  She has been a CDE for the past 11 years.  Mary’s experience includes various medical settings such as hospitals, doctor’s offices, and long-term care.  She understands and believes in the connection amongst nutrition, fitness, and healthy lifestyle behaviors.  Her philosophy of incorporating individualized patient eating patterns with small “do-able’ changes allows her to provide the best plans for each patient.  When she is not with her patients, Mary enjoys spending time with her husband and two children on the beaches on Huntington Beach.
