I am a late-deafened woman who communicates with the help of two cochlear implants. Over the last 25 years, I have written and published over 50 articles with a focus on hearing loss. I have also written articles for the Hospice Foundation of America's publication Journeys. My experience also includes teaching writing and research courses at the college level. I am working on a book describing my personal journey at this time.
I am a past president of the Westchester chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America, a volunteer for the Cochlear Corporation and I travel as often as I can.
Writing is my passion along with portraiture and being around nature.
Mary is available for personal essays and opinion editorial
