Marie Mayeux Losavio ,native of Moreauville, Louisiana, is a registered nurse, notary public and care manager. She volunteered with the local ambulance service in high school and college. She also completed a nurse aide course while in high school, working clinicals predominately in local nursing homes. She then completed a radiologic technology program. Marie completed her nursing degree and worked many years as a bedside nurse, caring for patients of all ages – but she found a particular love for caring for the elderly.

During this time, she was also on the quality control/quality assurance committee for the hospital, performing quality assurance for the pre-operative, pain management, and recovery room areas of the hospital. Using her pain management experience, she moved into a chief nursing officer position at a local clinic where she also became certified in infectious control. She was also a case manager for a local regional medical center for five years. Marie is also a member of the Baton Rouge Aging Network and a professional member of the Aging Life Care Association.
For the last seven years, Marie has worked as a case manager as well as an outreach marketing coordinator, assisting her husband, Peter J. Losavio, Jr., at Losavio & DeJean, LLC. Marie uses her medical and case management background to bridge the gap between care of the patient and the challenges facing healthcare and the funding needed for long-term care. She is also a co-author, with her husband, Peter, for the books You’re Not Alone Living with Alzheimer’s Disease and You’re Not Alone Living as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver. Together, Marie and her husband form a team along with other members at Losavio & DeJean, LLC to assist their clients.
