Mary Copeland-Myers

My leap of faith landed me at USC Upstate teaching OB/GYN in a BSN program. After a major crisis in my life, I moved from Charleston, SC from my custom built house to the small town of Laurens, SC to a 185+ year old house on a 73 acre farm that was previously owned by my Aunt Mary (I was named after her). I place all my trust in the Lord. Although the path is sometimes fuzzy, if you place your trust in Him, He will guide you or carry you. Many times, He has carried me! He is my Savior! I thank Him for all his mercies and grace. With His forgiveness, I know that I have eternal life in heaven. I pray each day that my actions &/or words will make a postive influence on my students. I am amazed how God has allowed me to have a successful career as a certified nurse midwife and now as an instructor. By sharing the miracle of life, I hope to spread His love to all my OB babies. (I am proud to say that my students call me - "Mother Mary". I care for my students as if they were my babies.) If you want to talk or pray, please contact me. Be blessed!
