Marie MacMillan

A native of the Pacific Northwest, she describes herself as a modern woman with a flair for story-telling, beer-drinking, and shenanigan-seeking. Her inspirations include, but are certainly not limited to: the great outdoors, the history and future of healthcare, contemporary romantic endeavors, general debauchery, and the human condition. When she's not writing prose or working on non-fiction projects, she hosts a healthcare-themed podcast entitled Head-to-Toe. She works as a registered nurse and lives in Portland, Oregon.


Marie has written several short stories and has a feature article at, “How Not to Be the New Grad Everyone Hates” (2018).

Her rom-com manuscript The Reboot: 50 Dates with Myself won 2nd Place in Memoir in the 2017 Pacific Northwest Writers Association Literary Contest.


I got to participate in Engel Jones' #12minuteconvos tour of North America! Check out our conversation in front of the Oregon State Capitol on 7/31/2018. He is an awesome individual and an inspiration and I feel so grateful to have spent a little time with him and his awesome NURSE wife Amanda. Check out to learn more about Engel and his Y.O.U.R.S. philosophy.

I was a guest on the Nurse Keith podcast! It was great to chat about how nursing, healthcare, and storytelling intersect. Thanks Keith for inviting me on your show!
