Connie Mariano is used to shattering the glass ceiling. She was the first military woman to become the White House Physician to the President, the first woman director of the White House Medical Unit, and the first Filipino American in U.S. Navy history to become a rear admiral.

After leaving the White House in 2001 following nine years of service to three sitting American presidents, Mariano became a consultant in the executive health program at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale from July 2001 to October 2005. In November 2005, she founded the Center for Executive Medicine, a medical concierge practice which provides presidential-quality medical care to CEOs and their families.

She is the author of the book, The White House Doctor: My Patients were Presidents, A Memoir, published in 2010 by St. Martin’s Press. She also hosts her own monthly talk show on the VoiceAmerica network, “House Calls with Dr. Connie.”

Mariano has a medical degree from the Uniformed Services University of Medicine in Maryland and a distinguished 24-year career in the U.S. Navy.
