Dorothy began her oncology career with the American Cancer Society, Florida Division, Inc., in 1972, as a clerk typist. She enjoyed a very exciting and interesting career with the ACS.

After retiring from the American Cancer Society, Dorothy developed her own business – Dorothy Phillips Consulting and Management, Inc.

In 2002, the Florida Society of Clinical Oncology contracted with Dorothy’s company to manage the State Society on a part time basis. In 2003, FLASCO contracted with her management company to be the full-time Executive Director for the Florida Society of Clinical Oncology.

Mary Lou’s compassion and willingness to learn more about FLASCO have made it an easy transition to become part of the staff.

During her free time, she loves visiting the beach to soak in the natural beauty of the ocean and to search for seashells to add to her large collection. She and her husband also enjoy discovering what surprises can be found in their new ‘hometown’ and around and beyond the Tampa Bay area, where their son lives.
