Marie Daly
Community Resource Specialist, The Whole You


In 2021, Marie was named as the Community Resource Specialist for The Whole You program. In her position, she works one-on-one with adult patients at The Shady Grove Aquilino Cancer Center newly diagnosed with cancer and other blood disorders and their families, providing assistance accessing community resources.


Prior to working with the Whole You program, Marie has served as the Manager of the Volunteer Helping Hands program, connecting CaringMatters' clients and their families facing serious illness and end-of-life with non-medical social and emotional support through our network of trained volunteers.


Formerly a high school teacher over a 21-year span, Marie earned her B.S. in English/journalism and her Master of Arts in English from The Bread Loaf School of English. Prior to moving to Maryland, she had been a Humanities professor at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. When she arrived in Maryland, she started volunteering at the organization because she ardently believes in its mission. She soon after joined the staff and focuses on ensuring that volunteers are matched with patients to help meet their various needs.
