Maria Long, Founder & Managing Member, USMC (Ret.)



In Step Supply is a Woman Owned, Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (WO, SDVOSB) providing hospital staff access to the highest quality and competitively priced medical products, tools, supplies, and services.

Formed from a combination of experience and opportunity, In Step Supply was founded by USMC Retired Colonel Maria Long. Her award- winning work as a VA field representative and case manager for Medical Solutions Supplier inspired her to expand her service to the dedicated professionals in the VA Healthcare System. Observing first-hand the efficacy of Lympha Press, Maria dedicated herself to making life better for veterans through this at-home therapy.


Prior to founding In Step Supply, Maria Long served as a Marine Intelligence Officer for 24 years. Ten successful years of active service followed by 14 years reserve duty culminated in the rank of Colonel before retiring in 2015.

While on reserve and active duty in the Marine Corps, Maria served as a liaison officer to brave wounded warriors. She developed programs designed to provide the best possible access to VA, state, and local community programs. “Our goal was to make the transition to civilian life easier for our veterans.”

A seasoned veteran, Maria has led Marines in real world operations requiring detailed planning, attention to detail, coordination, and execution of orders to accomplish mission objectives.

She earned a Bachelors of Science from the U.S. Naval Academy, a Master of Science in Business Administration from Boston University, and a Master of Science in Education from Old Dominion University.
