About Mary

Mary Stranahan is a retired osteopathic general practitioner on the Salish Kootenai Reservation in Western Montana. She practiced for 20 years as a general practitioner with a specialty in integrative medicine. She is now Manager of Good Works Ventures LLC, a for profit investment entity and The High Stakes Foundation that grants money to various Montana nonprofits. These ventures come as a direct influence from a convening called Play Big out of British Columbia, Canada. Our focus is on triple bottom line investments in the for profit arena and rural economic development, leadership development and environmental policy issues in Montana in the nonprofit arena. Mary relies on a very smart CEO who runs the whole operation which allows her to drop in and out as needed to further the cause of making Montana a more progressive state.
