Mary Hulme was raised in the West Portal neighborhood of San Francisco, CA.  After graduating from Lowell High School, she packed up her 1966 Mustang and headed to the University of California, Santa Cruz where she received her BA in Psychology. After college, she unhappily worked in hotel sales before fleeing to the mountains (and ski slopes) of Lake Tahoe.

Upon her return to San Francisco, Ms. Hulme earned a Master’s Degree in Social Welfare from U.C. Berkeley; while there, her studies and research focused on improving access to healthcare for the geriatric population.

Ms. Hulme received her clinical license from the Board of Behavioral Sciences in 2004 and went on to earn specialized certifications in health care and gerontology from the National Association of Social Workers.

Over the past 18 years, Ms. Hulme has worked with the geriatric population in both community-based and hospital-based settings, including over 12 years as the clinical social worker for a memory disorders clinic serving clients throughout Northern California.

Ms. Hulme founded Moonstone Geriatrics in June, 2013. In addition to running her consulting practice, she is on the board of SteppingStone Adult Day Healthcare.

In addition to providing geriatric consultation, dementia education and healthcare advocacy, Ms. Hulme frequently speaks on elder care and dementia at venues throughout the S.F. Bay Area.
