Captain Gemini XXX Mary Ann Edens

Captain Gemini XXX Mary Ann Edens, was born in Oakland, CA but then moved to the Midwest at the age of 6 months. After living in Lincoln, NE for a few years, her family settled in Marshalltown, IA where she grew up loving both sports and the theater.

She attended college at the University of Iowa, graduating from there with a BA in Biochemistry and then her MD. She completed her medical education by completing a residency in Emergency Medicine at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center in the Bronx after acting as chief resident her senior year.

After residency, she made an important decision in her life, moving to Louisiana. She settled in Baton Rouge and became board certified in Emergency Medicine while practicing as an attending physician at LSU/Earl K. Long Hospital. It was in Baton Rouge that her childhood loves turned into adult passions – LSU football and everything Mardi Gras.

After moving to Atlanta to practice at Emory University, she realized she missed Louisiana and moved back, this time to Shreveport. She serves as the Program Director for the LSUHSC-Shreveport Emergency Medicine Residency Program, educating the next generation of emergency physicians.

Mary Ann has been a member of the Krewe of Gemini since 2011. She was honored to serve as the Duchess of Arkansas XXV. Since that time she has served on the Gemini Board of Directors, first as Secretary, Captain Elect and now Captain. She is honored to be chosen as Captain XXX and looks forward to many years ahead with her wonderful Gemini family.
