“I have had the privilege of working with Mary over the past 4 years as a performance coach. Mary has helped me to identify and achieve far-reaching professional goals while balancing parenting a young child and cultivating nourishing personal time. Mary’s coaching approach combines psychology, change, and leadership theory, as well as adult learning, with the practical know-how of a seasoned manager, and through this unique technique, she has enabled me to navigate both management consulting and academia, as a doctoral student. Mary has taught me how to successfully manage conflict constructively and to set realistic boundaries based on environmental and stakeholder needs, as well as my own needs (professional and personal) to execute with precision and strength. Mary’s committed, kind, no-nonsense style has been nothing short of excellent over the years that I have worked with her. I highly recommend Mary as a performance coach.”
