"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mary regularly beginning in the fall of 2002. Whether in her role as funder, mentor or fellow board member, Mary always approaches issues with a high degree of professionalism and thoughtfulness. Her executive level experience in the public and private sectors provide Mary with the depth and breadth of knowledge and skill needed to be a successful career and leadership coach for both C-level and aspiring executives."
"I have had the pleasure of working with Mary professionally and personally since 1982 and am happy to attest to her integrity as well as her thoughtful and intuitive approach to evaluating professional issues and challenging situations. Mary’s broad real-life experiences as manager and leader serve her well as she can draw from those experiences in relating to issues that I or her other clients may present. As a CEO of a not-for-profit, it is extremely helpful to have a professional coach to meet with periodically to help facilitate difficult decision making and Mary is that person for me."
"Entering into a new field can be challenging and stressful, with Mary aiding in the process as a professional coach, I was able to pinpoint goals, set an agenda and stay on task with her support and vast experience in the non-profit sector. Mary provides discipline, focus and a structure for independent advancement and success in meeting objectives"
