Mariel Otter earned a Chesapeake Urology Scholarship in 2012 as she pursued a psychiatric nursing career. Since then, Mariel has volunteered in the Pediatric Psychiatric Unit at the University of Maryland (UMD) where she witnessed children shifting in and of inpatient services. As a result, she completed an evidence-based research project examining the effect of outpatient service accessibility after discharge in reducing recurrent inpatient psychiatric admissions.

She has worked with detox and general psychiatry, as well as being a child nurse therapist conducting home and school visits on a child psychiatry mobile team.
