Medical Legal Services is pleased to welcome Mary Puckett, LCSW-C, CCM to the team.

Mary brings a wealth of social work and case management knowledge and experience to the Medical Legal Services Division. After completing an undergraduate degree program at Loyola University, Mary earned a Master of Social Work in 2005 and soon became a Licensed Social Worker. She then became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 2007. Mary has extensive experience working with children and adolescents in various settings in partnership with different organizations. She has worked with clients in inpatient psychiatric facilities, residential group homes, and in the community through in-home support. Mary also worked for the Anne Arundel County Department of Social Services in Foster Care Reunification for five years. 

Prior to joining the Medical Legal Services division, Mary was a Clinical Care Coordinator with the REM Program at The Coordinating Center for 14 years! She has been a Certified Case Manager (CCM) for over 12 years and is currently completing training toward a certification as a Certified Life Care Planner (CLCP).  

When asked about her work at  The Coordinating Center, Mary responded, “If someone asks me about whether I like my job, my response is always some version of, ‘I would never want to work anywhere else.’  Life is hard! Many of our clients have extra obstacles to work through to live the life that they deserve and want to live.”

In her free time, Mary enjoys spending time with her family, volunteering at her local cat adoption center, reading, and refinishing furniture and cabinetry for her small business.  

Medical Legal Services is looking forward to the year ahead with our new addition to the team!
