Health Coach, Operations Manager
Mary is a functional medicine health coach certified by the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, the global leader in coach training programs, in collaboration with the Institute for Functional Medicine. She is passionate about helping clients accomplish their unique goals, and is dedicated to ensuring everyone has the opportunity to feel their best.
She is also a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach by the esteemed NBC-HWC, and a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Toledo.
With more than 30 years of experience coaching and mentoring, Mary has built empathetic and caring relationships conducive to making positive behavioral changes. Understanding clients’ strengths and challenges help Mary facilitate the most logical path to move forward together.
She believes strongly in a comprehensive, collaborative approach to each person’s health plan, and above all, she has experienced the benefits of functional medicine in her own healing journey.
In her thirties, Mary struggled with chronic disease, but was unable to find answers through traditional medical sources. However, after many years of enduring her health challenges, it became clear to Mary that she needed to discover the root cause of her illness, which led her to a functional medicine doctor and coaching services. Through this experience, she learned first-hand the value of working collaboratively with her coach to find root causes using an integrated, holistic approach to restore balance and manage her symptoms. She was also gradually able to heal and regain control of her health for the long term.
As a health coach, Mary empowers each client to take charge of their health, providing more in-depth and individual guidance than is typically available through standard healthcare. To that end, she frequently helps her clients implement physician-recommended lifestyle changes to protect against major health issues. As they strengthen their sense of awareness by initiating, executing and controlling their health strategies, clients often feel more capable of making healthy choices by creating their own roadmap to wellness.
