I came to work for Westgate Family Physicians in December, 1993. Before I came to work here, I was seeking God’s guidance as to where He wanted to use me. I interviewed here on a Monday, but before I walked through the front door, my prayer was--"Lord, if you want me here, please open this door for me before my interview tomorrow." I knew where ever I accepted a job, I would be committed to it. I left the office not feeling very good about the interview because I don’t think I interview well.
Still praying--"Lord, place me where You want me to serve," I was getting ready the next day to go for another interview. Just as I was walking out the door, the phone rang. I went back to answer it and guess who--Dr Johnson was calling. He said: "Mary if you are still interested, the doctors would like to offer you a job." I came to work as a floater nurse, helping all the doctors. I was here a year when Dr. Jackson’s nurse left. After the doctors interviewed for several weeks, looking for a nurse for Dr Jackson, he came to me one day and asked: "Mary, I would like for you to me my nurse. Do you think we could work together?" I said "I think we can." Then the journey began. For 14 years, we have worked together as a team, helping to meet the medical needs of our patients. Also, as the Lord has instructed us, showing our patients compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience--but most of all, praying with and for them, showing them love. Colossians 3:12-14
I love spending time with family and going on mission trips. I also enjoy cooking and horseback riding. My husband and I, along with a group from my church, take our horses to Myrtle Beach in the fall for a heart ride. We raise money for heart research.
My greatest desire is to honor and serve my Lord, Jesus Christ in all areas of my life.
