Our Sclerotherapy Team
Mary Guise, RN

Mary’s nursing experience includes obstetrics, pediatrics, neurosurgery and coronary care.
Before joining The Vein Clinic, Mary served as the Chief Sclerotherapist at Maryland Vein Professionals and as the Manager of Quality Assurance and Clinical Sclerotherapy Training for a national vein-care organization.
Sally Howe, RN
Sally comes to us from The Center for Vein Restoration in eastern Maryland. She is the mother of 4 and spent her early years homeschooling her children. She began her nursing career later in life with intentions of specializing in orthopedic care. Her legs changed her path and changed her passion for helping patients. Sally has a family history of varicosities and in her early nursing years, the pain, swelling, constant discomfort and inability to fly & travel led her to seek treatment. She refused to live the rest of her life with restrictions because of her legs! She received treatment in Wilmington, NC and it changed her life!!! She was so passionate about early intervention and the life changing effects of treating venous disease that she accepted a job as a scerlotherapy nurse on the procedure table at the end of her treatment plan.
Sally has helped thousands of patients and has a unique perspective to share, being a patient before becoming a sclero nurse.
She takes pride in her work and enjoys the rewarding feeling of “seeing and treating patients knowing that I CAN make black ankles & feet go away! I literally know how it feels to be in their shoes and I KNOW that treating legs changes lives”
When not working, Sally enjoys theater, music, painting, the beach and boating. She’s proud to share that because of her vein treatments, she loves not just watching sports, but playing too!
We are truly blessed to have her join our staff. Her passion for vein care is contagious. In her first three months here, she has patients raving about her bedside manner and her amazing work.
