MEET OUR TEAM
Dr. Robert “Jeff” Mara
Emergency Medicine Physician
Originally from Northwest Indiana, Dr. Mara graduated from Indiana University Medical School in 1993. He completed his residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Illinois in Peoria in 1996. After practicing in the ER of an urban hospital in Indianapolis for almost 20 years, he moved to Sarasota in 2015. After years of seeing the devastating effects of the opioid crisis, he became interested in medical marijuana as an alternative once Florida passed the law legalizing medical marijuana in November 2016. He became educated and began qualifying patients in the fall of 2017. He has been gratified to find help for many other patients in addition to those suffering from pain.
Vicki Mara, RN
Owner, Patient Advocate
Originally from Speedway, Indiana in the shadow of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Vicki went to college in 1988 to pursue nursing. After an unfortunate meeting with a guidance counselor who told her that “there are too many nurses and the program is full”, she pursued Marketing. After working as an Office Manager for a medical practice, she still had the strong desire to be a nurse. In 2000 Vicki graduated from Ivy Tech Community College, passed her boards, and finally realized her dream to be a registered nurse. She worked for many years in a family practice office in a suburb of Indianapolis. In 2006 she took a job doing telephonic case management for patients with chronic conditions. She was promoted quickly to Informatics Manager doing training, implementation and design of case management software.
