Mary joined the Mayfair family in July 1992 as a veterinary assistant. She has a BA in History from Bridgewater College in Bridgewater, Virginia. Mary also spent a year in England at the College of St. Paul and St. Mary studying history. She enjoys working in veterinary medicine because she gets to interact with the pets and clients and see the bond that is formed between the two. Mary gets a sense of peace knowing she has helped that bond in some small way. She also enjoys seeing and experiencing how much veterinary medicine has advanced over the years. Mary's favorite thing about working at Mayfair is that it lets her "express her inner geek".
She loves working in our laboratory and getting that first piece of information in trying to figure out what is going on with a pet. Mary says that "figuring out what is wrong with a pet is like a puzzle and I like helping the doctors complete the picture. The Mayfair team refers to Mary as our "lab guru" because she is so good at performing the many in-hospital tests that we offer and because she loves anything that requires a microscope.
Mary has an orange domestic shorthair cat named, Chedder. Born and raised in Roanoke, Virginia, Mary now calls Pittsboro home. She is married to a retired park ranger and has one son. In her spare time, Mary enjoys reading, camping, kayaking, swimming, and traveling.
