My name's Mary, and I'm SO glad you're here!
I'm a Holistic Health Coach specializing in helping women achieve their health goals and maximize their overall happiness! My mission is to empower women by teaching them to have a healthy relationship with food & their bodies.
I graduated from Bradley University in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship. For the past 6 years I’ve been working at Caterpillar Inc. in various roles, providing excellent customer service to clients, dealers, and colleagues. I excel in customer support, problem solving, and coaching clients.
I’ve always had many passions outside of my 9-5, including cooking seasonally with real food, health, and wellness. I love to try new recipes and create my own. I also believe that health and wellness should be addressed holistically and strive to practice this in my own life.
In January 2017, I took my passion for health and wellness to the next level by enrolling in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a Holistic Health Coach! Since graduating in January 2018 I’ve been coaching women to better health & overall happiness and love every minute of it!
I believe that each of us is unique, and there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to diet, exercise, and self care practices. I meet my clients where they are, and provide a customized approach to each individual. After all, I want to help you find what works for YOU to live a healthy, vibrant, and happy life!
I’ve married my skills with coaching, customer service, and problem solving with my deep knowledge of health and wellness to create a holistic health coaching practice that provides my clients with deep support and accountability in achieving their health goals!
In my coaching practice, each woman I've worked with come to me with health goals around improving their diet, implementing a workout routine, and/or reducing stress. And I've helped them with all of these!
But, what I've found to be the key to a healthy, sustainable, happy life isn't any of these things alone.....
It all starts with your mindset.
That's right. You can drink all the green juice in the world and do all the crunches possible, but if your mindset isn't healthy, you won't be healthy either.
What we believe about ourselves and the thoughts we have on a consistent basis affect our decisions.
If you're constantly thinking negative thoughts about yourself and your body, a healthy lifestyle will not be sustainable. If your motivation is coming from self-hate instead of self-love, the road to achieving your goals will be a constant battle.
That's why I created my coaching practice, Together Thriving!
I believe that we simply cannot go about this world alone, trying to do everything ourselves.
I mean, I totally get it. We’re all strong, independent women over here.
I know what it’s like to try to go it alone, and to struggle through it. Despite my ambition and independence, I so craved someone else to understand and be there with me.
I want to be your support system, your personal cheerleader, because I GET YOU and I DEEPLY CARE about you and your success!
I also believe that deep down, we don’t want to just exist in this world. We want to THRIVE.
Gone are the days of living the grind, living to work. There is a shift happening, can you feel it?
We are READY to bring JOY and PLEASURE into our lives every day! I want to help you discover what lights you up and MAKE IT HAPPEN, for real this time!
I want to help empower you to take your health and life into your own hands. We nourish our bodies with the foods we eat, the ways we move ours bodies, and even how we manage our everyday lives and stress.
