About Me

Hi! My name is Mary,

I’ve always been the life of the party, a big smile plastered on my face with a few jokes to follow, but behind that smile, I was dying inside. I was an obese teen which carried me into my early 20s. A series of bad relationships, low self-esteem, low self-worth and emotional eating allowed my weight to raise to over 300 pounds. I was disgusted with myself but I hid behind my smile and convinced everyone around I was happy with the life I was living. I felt empty like I was living a lie, had no passion, had no hope, I was a zombie sleepwalking my way through life. That all changed when someone asked me a simple question

“Are you working towards the woman
you were born to become?”

I stopped and pondered the question, really thought about it. I didn’t answer quickly with a smart yes or cocky attitude. Of course, the answer was NO. I was nowhere near the woman I believed I was born to become, I was fat, in a horribly dependent relationship, working an unfulfilling job and had strained relationship with my family all my relationships were strained. I had to change; didn’t know how or what I was going to do but I couldn’t continue living like this.

How do I live my passion?
What does living my passion even look like?

It took me a year to lose over 100 pounds. When I lost the weight, I thought I would be instantly happy, but I wasn’t. I still needed to address my toxic behavior, the constant negative talk that seemed to be on repeat in my head. I got a job at the nicest health club in San Francisco. I wanted to help people do what I did, assist them to take control of their weight but I was only dealing with the physical, I wasn’t addressing what was going on inside. I wasn’t tackling their sabotaging behavior or even my own for that matter.

After working at the health club for a few years, I realized I wasn’t living my truth, and I was nowhere near it. Instead of helping people lose weight I was helping corporate make their sales goals. I was good at what I did and excelled at a high rate but I wasn’t happy, I wasn’t fulfilling my passion, wasn’t living my dream, wasn’t the woman I was born to be.

I realized I wanted to make a difference in the world. I wanted to help people grow, expand and succeed. I quit my job, cashed in some of my 401K and traveled around the world. Visited nine different countries, partied, met people, wrote, meditated, connected with myself and realize I had all the answers, I was the only thing holding me back, and I wanted to help other people understand that also. That was my passion, my dream job, that’s what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, but I didn’t know where to start.

Less than a week later I was approached by a friend on Facebook asking if I was willing to be her Life Coach. I was slightly confused and exhilarated. Life Coaching? Me a Life Coach? I had no idea what I was doing but it sounded exciting, and she believed I would be the key to her success.

We coached for a couple of months, and I fell in love with the profession and had a thirst for learning more skills helping people become their authentic selves. I attended CTI – The Coaches Training Institute and started a practice called Evolve with Mary

“So, what do I do?”

I help people harvest their natural skills and ability, assist them as they discover what makes them tick and what holds them back. I facilitate clients to create healthy boundaries, set and conquer real goals and hold them accountable. I ask the hard questions and help find, or create, the passionate life they’ve always wanted to live. Coaching changed my life, and I’ve seen it change the lives of my clients and the lives of the people around my clients.

I coach one on one, group coaching, corporate coaching, give wellness workshops and am also a motivational speaker.

I believe everyone needs a coach, someone to believe in you, to push you to your limits so you can maximize every minute we have on this earth.

Are you ready to maximize your life, to shift your reality, to live your passion, to let your light shine?
