My name is Marli Page and I have been practicing as a Registered Nurse in the Emergency setting since 2012. I recently graduated with a Master of Science in Nursing- Family Nurse Practitioner. I have been serving with MMO as a volunteer team member on trips since 2013. I joined MMO as a staff member in 2019. I will be utilizing my skills as a Nurse Practitioner as Clinical Director at MMO. My biggest excitement comes from partnering with MMO in reaching the world with the gospel!
