Mara's interest in medicine started in 2015 while taking undergraduate classes at the University of Maryland. While in school, she started scribing for an emergency department outside of Baltimore and volunteered on medical missions to the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. After graduating with degrees in Public Health Science and Psychology, she worked with orthopedic specialists outside of Washington DC and then returned to school; Mara received her Master of Medical Science in Physician Assistant Studies at the University of Tennessee in Memphis, TN in 2021. She is a board-certified physician assistant working alongside our doctors to create plans of care and help her patients reach their goals.
Outside of work, Mara enjoys running, hiking, reading, and traveling with her friends and family. Since moving to Washington, she’s been eagerly exploring all the state and national parks in the area. Let her know if you have recommendations!
