OUR TEAM - Staff & Volunteers

Most of the work at the Mariam Clinic is accomplished by volunteers.

These generous volunteers are the heart and soul of our clinic. They have diverse backgrounds representing various religions, cultures and ethnicity. Many of these volunteers are multilingual, which allows us to effectively communicate with our equally diverse patient population in a more welcoming manner.

Elaine Oakley - Clinic Director

Elaine was born and raised in Canada where she earned her BA in Psychology and Gerontology. For several years she was a level I Trauma Nurse in the ER  followed by case management for home infusion therapy.  She believes that one's financial situation should not be a barrier to healthcare. It is an honor to serve the clients of Mariam Clinic and she is proud of the quality of medicine they receive. The volunteers are the most dedicated staff she has ever worked with and it's a privilege to serve along side them. She currently serves on the Clinical Commitee, QA and Compliance, and Policies & Procedures.
