Whether marching in Washington DC for women’s rights, lobbying for the hungry, or helping women succeed in their personal and professional lives, Mary’s mission for the past 25 years, is to find a way to help women see their power, strength and embrace their capabilities.
She combines her years as a cognitive behavioral psychotherapist with her experience as a business strategist and consultant to help women worldwide have everything they want…. guilt-free.
