Hi and welcome to American Midsters. I’m Mary-Anne and live in the Metro Washington DC area. I am a wife, a mother of two young adult boys and sometimes missing them a bit in their younger years.   But who’s kidding who, having them older and mostly independent is awesome too!  Career-wise, I’m a public health nurse and truly am passionate about making sure all children in school with disabilities and or chronic illnesses have the accommodations they need to thrive, despite the challenges they may have. In addition to working in a career I enjoy and find rewarding, I love exploring the world both near and far, photographing and writing about life and things that inspire me. My best days are those spent with family, friends, and creating moments in the day that make both myself and others smile. I’m living in the middle of my story and I can’t wait to see where it takes me next. I’m determined to live abundantly with intent, purpose, and a dash of adventure!
