Pursuing Her Passion

In junior high school, Mary decided she wanted to pursue a career in nursing. Her mother forbade her from doing so hoping that she would study business in order to become a secretary. Due to Mary’s academic excellence, her high school principal allowed her to study both subjects simultaneously. Upon graduating, Mary began nursing training at St. Catherine’s hospital where she dedicated 72 hours a week pursuing her true passion.

A Lifetime of Accomplishments
