Mary Battey, our practice manager, can’t seem to get enough of Good Beginnings! A graduate of the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service and Columbia University Business School, Mary spent many years in the oil industry until her 2nd child was born. Bored with sitting in the waiting room while her son was getting OT and PT, she decided to put her MBA to good use and set up Good Beginnings’ first administrative office back in 1993. She left Good Beginnings in 2000 when the office manager job became a full-time one and she wanted to work on a part-time basis. In the ensuing years Mary worked part-time at several different medical practices and volunteered at her children’s schools. She eventually returned to full-time employment when her children went to college. Mary returned to Good Beginnings in January 2010 after the last tuition payment was made! She is very happy to be back. Mary is in the office (at our Falls Church location) Mondays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. In addition to running the practice, Mary is responsible for making all new patient appointments for both offices.
