Maryann Powers, Office Manager
Maryann has been with Dr. Furgiuele for nearly 18 years, so she knows
a thing or two about breast surgery. A graduate of CCAC South's Medical Assistant program, Maryann
also worked in a family medicine practice prior to her position with Dr. Furgiuele. A lifelong resident of the
South Hills, she enjoys cooking, entertaining, and spending time with her family. She is passionate about
helping patients through what can be a very difficult stage of their lives and strives to make everyone feel
at home in Dr. Furgiuele’s office.

for 24 years. Kathy, a licensed practical nurse, is a graduate of Reynolds Memorial Hospital School of
Practical Nursing in Glendale, West Virginia. She is a resident of the Washington, Pa. area, is active in
her church, and enjoys spending time with her family.

Linda Spinden, Registered Nurse
Linda graduated from Edinboro University with a bachelor's degree in nursing and has more than 20
years of experience in medical and surgical nursing, home health nursing, and as a school nurse. A
survivor of ovarian cancer, Linda is an active fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. She uses her
personal cancer experience to relate to patients and help them see all of the options available to them
during the breast surgery process. A resident of McDonald, Pa., she enjoys crafts, reading, and spending
time with her family.

Francine Flaherty, CST
Francine Flaherty has worked with Dr. Furgiuele in various capacities for the past 15 years.  As Francine’s children graduated from high school and went off to college, she decided to start a new career in the medical field.  She gained her education, finishing at the top of her class, and started her career in surgical technology at St. Clair Memorial Hospital. While she has enjoyed years of working as part of various surgery teams, she has always had a strong passion for working directly with patients. When Dr. Furgiuele asked her to come on board as a member of her staff, seeing patients and working in the office, it was a great opportunity for Francine to follow her passion.  Francine spends her off days taking care of and visiting with her four grandchildren.

and has been a surgical technician II at a level 1 training center, worked in several operating rooms,
