Mara is one of our newest band members of North East Community Band, having just joined this past spring. She enjoys playing flute alongside other flautists and piccolo players. She has played flute for 14years now (and played piccolo for 6 of those years as well).
In her non-band life, Mara works as a Registered Nurse (RN) at both a community clinic and a hospital in South Minneapolis. She loves her jobs and the difference she makes in her patients’ lives.
Outside of work she also enjoys cooking, baking, running, hiking, camping, and biking... most recently she has signed up for her first triathalon and hopes to successfully train for and complete that this coming summer.
Her favorite music movie is August Rush. If she could play any other instrument in the band besides the flute and piccolo, she’d want to play the bass clarinet. Her dream job if she could pick anything other than nursing would be to record movie music and be a part of famous scores in well-known movies (really anything by John Williams or Hans Zimmer).
