Mary's Story

Hi, I’m Mary. And I know how exhausted and overwhelmed you feel. 


I’m a mom, too.


After the birth of my children, I realized that my doctors couldn’t provide the solutions I needed to keep myself and my family healthy. 


My children struggled with sensory processing and GI issues. 


I dealt with mysterious fatigue, brain fog, and autoimmune disease and tragically lost my daughter, Karis Liberty Hope, to catastrophic uterine rupture.   


I felt drained and helpless. No one had an explanation that made sense.


I was so determined to solve my family’s health problems that I built on my work as a graduate-level science educator and began studying nutrition. 


Fast forward ten years—I’m now a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. 


And I finally have answers. 


No more fatigue. No more brain fog. No more missing out on my children’s lives. 


There is an explanation for why you feel so tired, and it’s not your fault.


The good news is that there are solutions.


It’s time to get back to your family, to doing the things you love. 


Mary is a formerly exhausted mom to five children (and wife to one very lucky man) who now helps other moms beat fatigue and get back to the lives they love. 


After years of questioning her and her family’s health issues, she was unexpectedly inspired by a trip to the Bronx Botanical Gardens. Mary was intrigued that there might be remedies beyond what was suggested by her family’s medical team, and she wanted to learn more.


Mary’s curiosity led her to become a student again, and in 2019 she became a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. She has also completed her certification in Mastering the Healing Arts of Gut Healing & Mastering the Art and Science of Nutritional Blood Chemistry through The Restorative Wellness Solutions and is now a Restorative Wellness Practitioner. 

Mary is also a Trauma Informed practitioner through the Trauma Healing Accelerated Program, taught by Aimie Apigian, MD, MS, MPH.


Her busy practice—I Deserve Health Nutritional Therapy—is focused on helping other families find solutions to their frustrating and sometimes debilitating medical needs.

Along with her certification as an FNTP + RWP, Mary holds a Bachelor of Science in Health Education and Promotion and a Master’s of Science in Education from Lehman College City University of New York. For five years, she worked as a health educator with the renowned Medical Magnet Program, a medical preparation initiative that readies middle and high-schoolers for careers in medicine. 


Mary now has the energy to pursue a vibrant life. She loves spending time with her family, including her two dogs York and Bristol, her two chickens Charazar and Autumn, learning aerial acrobatics, and creating remembrance jewelry for other moms who have lost babies from catastrophic uterine rupture.
