Maree is one of those young women -- busy enough with a career, her own family and Strathpeffer community action -- who managed to find space and time from nowhere to make a big contribution in the indyref – and beyond. During the (indyref) campaign, Maree organised a truly memorable Blossom event in the village (Strathpeffer) with local musicians and a great spread of food -- about 250 folk attended. An idea about land reform raised at that meeting became the focus for a very well attended event in the recent #OurLand campaign too. Maree is a natural networker -- the idea for a Blossom meeting in Strathpeffer came after she attended a similar meeting in Farr -- and moves easily and readily across the wider Highland community. That's an important attribute in a list MSP. I'd say Maree is a thoughtful, capable, smart and quietly determined woman who will make a great MSP. Don't be fooled by the pleasant demeanour -- this is a woman who gets things done!

I first met Maree during the run up to the Independence Referendum where she was a leading member of the NHS for Yes team in Highland. Sharing a platform with her during that campaign I saw first-hand her deep understanding, passion and commitment for both the NHS and independence for Scotland. I fully endorse her candidacy for the list in the Highlands and Islands and know her abilities will stand the area in good stead when she gets to Holyrood.
Dr Paul Monaghan - MP for Caithness, Sutherland & Easter Ross
I have known Maree for several years and have worked with her to improve the lives of families, young people and those with vulnerabilities in our community in practical ways. Maree is a very hardworking person with a genuine interest in the wellbeing of others. She is exactly the sort of person that we need to represent our Highlands and Islands interests in the Scottish Parliament and I hope she is widely supported to do that.
Ian Blackford - Member of Parliament for Ross, Skye and Lochaber
I am delighted to support Maree in her campaign to become a Highlands &Islands list MSP for the Scottish National Party. Having grown up in the Highlands as well as having spent her working career in the Highlands, Maree has a clear understanding of the issues that confront us in this region. Maree has long experience of working in her community which together with her interest and knowledge in health matters will give her a strong platform to be a progressive and positive voice for the people of the Highlands & Islands.
