With over 39 years as a healthcare provider, Mara is now a nationally Board Certified Adult Nurse Practitioner. Before attending the University of California at San Francisco Masters in Nursing program, Mara was a homecare and hospice RN. She earned her Master’s in 2005 and began working in Integrative Medicine as a Nurse Practitioner.
Learning to use an extensive number of pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements, diet, herbal and homeopathic tinctures, as well as, bioidentical hormones, Frequency Specific Microcurrent, and Therapeutic Touch; Mara has a ‘tool kit’ that can help almost any condition and improve quality of life.
Over the last several years, Mara developed an expertise in treating Tick Borne Disease and Biotoxin illness. Using the best of Western and Eastern philosophies of medicine, the blend allows for a more complete picture of the problem and how to treat it. Mara focuses on restoring function in the body, strengthening the immune system, decreasing inappropriate inflammation, restoring detoxification pathways, balancing hormones, and healing the intestinal tract. This allows the body to reclaim the processes that have been hijacked by the infections. Without doing this recovery is less likely. Then, those who have been ill can begin treating and healing. These illnesses are too often misdiagnosed or undiagnosed leading to further disability and decline.
This became apparent to Mara when her daughter became bedridden with Chronic Lyme Disease after being misdiagnosed for over 20 years. (Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis were some of the diagnoses she was given.) Her daughter spent over 5 years bedridden. The longer these infections remain untreated, the longer it takes to recover, and damage to the tissues occurs over time.
As a result of caring for her daughter, Mara wrote a primer for people on Chronic Lyme Disease or Recurring Tick Borne Disease called Nature’s Dirty Needle. She also founded a 501c3, Inanna House, which, when built, will be the first inpatient retreat center in the country focusing on these diseases.
Mara now lives in Deer Harbor on Orcas Island with her husband.
