Intensive Care & Emergency Nurse
Born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia, Mary Anne has been in the veterinary field for over 20 years. She spent two years at Penn State Abington studying Animal BioScience before transferring to Manor College where she graduated in 2005 with an Associate's Degree in Veterinary Technology and went on to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. After becoming licensed, she continued her career working in Emergency and Critical Care at several of the large specialty and emergency hospitals in Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs. In 2016, Mary Anne became a Veterinary Technician Specialist in Emergency and Critical Care. In 2018 Mary Anne returned to Manor College and graduated in 2021 with a bachelor of science in interdisciplinary studies of math, science, and engineering… becoming one of the first graduates from Manor within the department!
Mary Anne not only has a passion for patient care, but she loves training and educating new veterinary nurses as well as mentoring those looking to become specialized in emergency and critical care. She has close to five years of experience in working as an externship coordinator, where she developed a program for nursing students to attend in order to complete their clinical requirements prior to graduation. Mary Anne brings her passion for education and mentoring to PASE. She is excited to build an externship program while supporting the nursing team as each individual works to grow and advance in their veterinary careers.
Outside of veterinary medicine, Mary Anne is a mother of three amazing kids ages 17, 12, and 8. She and her family moved to Collegeville four years ago, where she spends her free time being a sports mom and running between basketball, soccer, and hockey practices. Mary Anne enjoys live music and attending concerts, and considers herself a “die-hard Philly sports fan (GO BIRDS!). Along with three kids, Mary Anne also has two dogs and a cat (Merlot the Rottie, Princess the pit bull, and Baxter the cat). Mary Anne also works to co-lead a nonprofit that provides support for local families who have suffered from pregnancy and early infant loss.
