Dr Mary Anna Sanders was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee. After graduating from GPS, she pursued degrees in pre-med biology as well as english from Lee University, from where she graduated magna cum laude. She attended medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine before returning home for residency at the UT College of Medicine Chattanooga Campus at Baroness Erlanger Hospital. During medical school she served as the chairwoman of the Ethics Committee. She completed residency in 2014 and has been in private practice in the greater Chattanooga/North Georgia area ever since. She is a board certified fellow of the American College of Obstetricians/Gynecologists.
Dr Sanders feels that her "job" is a calling and passionately enjoys working in this field of medicine. Being the first to lay hands on a miraculous new life is not an opportunity that she takes for granted. Fearfully and Wonderfully Made OB/GYN, PLLC was birthed out of the desire to create a NEW practice with NEW purpose. The intention is to be a unified practice that meets the gynecologic and obstetrical needs of her patients but also to empower women to live in the awareness that they are fearfully and wonderfully made (psalm 139:14) without rival for an amazing and unique purpose.
Fearfully when translated from the hebrew means with great reverence, heart-felt interest, and with respect whereas wonderfully means unique and set apart.
Dr. Sanders also has a special interest in missions work and serves on the board at Shepherd's Arms Rescue Mission located in South Chattanooga, where she resides, as well as Score International. She annually participates in a medical/dental mission trip to the Dominican Republic but has also traveled to Ghana, El Salvador, and Nepal. She also strongly advocates for the rights of the unborn and serves at The Care Center located in Dayton, TN.
