Mary T.


Mary is originally from Kenosha, Wisconsin. She attended Dartmouth College where she majored in Biology with a concentration in Genetics and minored in Theater. After college, she was selected as a Richard D. Lombard Public Service Fellow and spent a year working with a non-profit organization working to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality in the most remote, rural areas around the world. Mary then headed to Harvard Medical School. While there she has been honored by the Association of American Medical Colleges with the Herbert W. Nickens Award and by the American Medical Association with the Minority Scholars Award. Between her third and fourth year of medical school, she received a master's degree in public health in the field of quantitative methods (Biostatistics & Epidemiology) from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and was named a Zuckerman Fellow by the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. Currently, Mary is a resident in Obstetrics and Gynecology caring for patients at Northwestern and the Stroger Cook County Hospital in Chicago, IL. 

Mary has coached students through the medical admissions process for the last eight years. She began this work by co-founding the Pathways to Medicine program at her alma mater for students underrepresented in medicine. Additionally, as a graduate residential advisor at MIT and former President of the Harvard Chapter of the Student National Medical Association, she has mentored students in the greater Boston area interested in medicine. Most recently, Mary cast wider net mentoring students and started a podcast called Dear Premed. In addition to her admissions coaching experience, Mary's core strengths in tutoring include Spanish, probability & statistics, biology, and physics. Mary has studied abroad in both Mexico and Costa Rica. 

Outside of medicine, Mary loves the arts. Her favorite things to do in Chicago are attending her weekly hip hop dance class and going to see musicals, concerts and comedy shows!

    "My self-esteem was on the lower end when I applied due to my second MCAT score. Mary did a great job in encouraging me to aim for the schools that I wanted to apply to and helping me strategize my school list and my secondary responses. Mary also helped me immensely with mock interviews (behavioral questions). Cambridge Coaching played a significant role in my application process."
