 She began her career in the spa industry in the late 1970’s and her passion for wellness and the spa lifestyle has deepened with each passing year.

She specializes in a holistic approach to beauty through optimum health in her skin care practice at a fitness and wellness center for women in Newport Beach, California.

 Mary is a trainer/educator in the spa industry, traveling internationally to share her expertise with top resorts and spas.  Her in-depth classes and workshops include an Aromatherapy Workshop, Natural & Organic Skin & Body Treatments, Anti-Aging Superfoods, Around the World with Tea, Convenient Nutrition and others.

 Mary's passion for sharing her knowledge and providing the best treatment programs possible led her to create a health and wellness retreat that she leads once a year to exotic and nature-intense locals such as Costa Rica and Tuscany, Italy where guests enjoy a week of fun and adventure while dedicating themselves to focusing on their own personal wellness.
