Professional Coaching with My Coach Marie

Commit yourself to personal growth now…

You deserve to thrive

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

~ Mary Oliver

Hi, I’m Marie!

I am passionate about helping others become the best version of themselves. I help people build mental fitness and utilize their strengths to find greater success and personal happiness in service of more effective leadership, diversity, equity and inclusion. I specialize in helping transform dynamic women into confident leaders.

I have a graduate-level academic certificate in Executive and Professional Coaching from the University of Texas at Dallas, and I am a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I will receive a Master’s degree in Leadership and Organizational Development in August 2023.

Until I recently retired, I worked in the higher education field for 30 years. I bring a wealth of experience leading teams through simplification efforts and I am an expert facilitator and coach with a background in change management and process improvement. I served on the board of the international organization, Network for Change and Continuous Innovation (NCCI), and I collaborate with colleagues across the country to encourage innovation. 

I’ve worked with leaders in the fields of technology, medicine and higher education, as well as with entrepreneurs and non-profit leaders. 

Success and happiness are achieved by focusing on strengths. Mine are:

Genuine - I am… honest, sincere, self-assured, and a truth teller and seeker with a strong inner compass.

I value serving others. I am a long-time volunteer for the Burning Man Project and I’ve served in many roles including Black Rock Ranger where I learned compassion for those needing support. I was also trained and volunteered as an advocate for survivors of domestic violence in my hometown, which taught me that people thrive when they receive support in reaching their overarching goals.

Curious - I am… open, optimistic, committed to personal growth, and invigorated by what is possible.

I believe in everyone’s ability to learn and change. I have been an artist all my life, but I began oil painting in 2007 when I decided to pull out some oil paints I had inherited from my grandmother 30 years prior. I loved it and haven’t stopped since. I amaze myself every time I create a beautiful painting because I didn’t start until I was in my 40’s. It’s never too late to try new things!

Energized - I am... motivated by turning thoughts into action, a self-starter with drive, stamina and perseverance.

I loved living in Santa Cruz, California and have been an avid scuba diver and ocean sailor over the years. I even once sailed all the way across the Pacific Ocean from Hawaii to Victoria, BC! If you’re not sure you can do something, make a plan and go for it…

Creative - I am… strategic, a big picture thinker and pattern finder.

For me, this includes having a growth mindset, and with that mindset, anything is possible. We must all be mindful of where we are now and where and what we want to be. I learned mindfulness many years ago while a member of the Ann Arbor Buddhist Temple and my life was changed forever.

My Approach

I believe that every person is brilliant in their own way and comes to the table fully capable of solving their problems. People thrive when they have the opportunity to explore options and safely stretch themselves beyond their limiting beliefs.

I provide that confidential safe space where you can come up for a breath of fresh air and clear your head. We will practice growing your mental fitness so you can move forward and thrive.

She never tells me what to do, rather, she asks some very direct and specific questions, you know those tough questions you don’t really want to hear and you need to hear in order to make improvements? Her method of questioning is kind and curious, yet those questions end up sticking with me and driving me to get a move on.

…we engaged on issues such as leading difficult people and elevating the team from the tactical to the strategic. Marie was a true professional, and an expert asking the perfect questions to prompt insightful “a-ha” moments. At the end of each coaching session, I had a concrete plan to create forward momentum on an issue that had previously confounded me. An active listener, with great intellect, and an outgoing affable personality, Marie ranks in the top 2 of executive coaches I have worked with in my more than 15 years in the C-suite and equivalent positions; the other I paid $1,000 an hour.

“Working with Marie provided more structure for reaching my goals and helped in making my aspirations real. 
One thing I am most grateful for is that Marie really helped me to more clearly see some of my unique gifts and talents that I took for granted because they were so natural and innate in me. I am grateful for her thoughtful and caring feedback supporting me to  take bold actions and make the leap from where I was to where I wanted to be. 
If you have the opportunity to work with Marie, take it! I would highly recommend her as a coach. She is dedicated to your growth and I know her skills and insight will make a big impact in your life.
