Mary’s peers awarded her the Australia and New Zealand Society of Occupational Medicine John Stokes Medal for her services to occupational medicine.
In 2021, Mary was keynote presenter of the Jim MacDonald Lecture Tour for the Institute of Quarrying, travelling throughout New Zealand to present to large audiences, culminating in being awarded the Lyn Jordan Memorial Trophy at the AQA/IOQ National Awards for the best technical paper.
Mary drives practical, genuine health and safety at work. Her special interests include harm prevention, complex occupational issues, psychosocial hazards, aging workers, young workers, and environmental medicine.
