Hello! I'm Mary.
Creativity has guided me throughout my life. As a young girl, I was always making things: Barbie cakes, bamboo forts, sand castles. In college, I invented classes with twists on conventional themes. I even managed to find a spark of creativity in my corporate work before choosing another path.
Today that path is Traditional Chinese Medicine. After two years in Hanoi where I taught about creativity, volunteered, and developed an organization for trailing partners, I begin my studies of acupuncture and qigong at Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. (There is a forthcoming essay on how I ended up in medicine and how it relates to creativity.)
When I’m not making something or writing, I can be found outdoors or with my nose buried in a book.
