Mary Liz has loved Women's health since her first undergraduate clinical placement when her clinical instructor was a Nurse Practitioner from Boston College. She decided then and there that was her goal. After 10 years as an RN in ICU and Labor and Delivery, she became a Nurse Practitioner and is also dual certified as a CNM. While working at UMass Memorial Medical Center, Mary Liz was appointed to the Governor's Commission on Post Partum Depression and was a member until moving back to Maine in 2018.

After raising 3 children in Central Massachusetts, she moved back to Maine to be closer to family and has been enjoying all that Maine has to offer. Working in gynecology/oncology for the last 3 years, she has learned so much and has been inspired by the strength and courage of so many women. Mary Liz is excited to again be working with women throughout their lifespan, including the childbearing cycle. She enjoys helping women navigate the decisions that they have to make regarding their healthcare.

When not working, Mary Liz enjoys spending time with her 3 adult children and her partner, his 2 adult children and their growing number of grandchildren. She likes to hike, bike and swim in the summer and ski and snowshoe in the winter.
