From My Clients

Former Executive Recruiter


Breckenridge, CO

"Working with Mary Margaret has been nothing short of incredible and the single best investment I have made in my business. She helped me launch a business and create my first course during our time together.


Her guidance and knowledge helped me recreate the way I work and in ways I couldn't have ever imagined. Her intangible gifts and thoughts around leadership are paving the way for a new era of working. Every business leader and entrepreneur could benefit from her work."

Vocal Coach



Boston, MA

"It has been a profound experience working with Mary Margaret. As a creative and a service-based entrepreneur, I have struggled on my path with feeling confident around finances, business acumen and what it takes to build a non-traditional business.


Mary Margaret has not only put those fears to rest in the most empathetic manner, she has helped me understand that I was doing the absolute best I could given the circumstances of the current paradigm: one that is linear, based in black and white and does not necessarily support creative female vision and leadership.​


She has given me fresh new tools and confidence to move forward as a visionary. She has helped me understand that my mission is vital and important in helping create a better, healthier planet and to serve humanity in a new way.


Her bite-sized weekly homework assignments have had a powerfully positive effect on me. Her insights and knowledge of the skills and resources that women bring to the table in business is nothing short of a godsend. I finally feel understood and ready to bring my gift to the world."

Talent & Organizational Development Director

Portland, OR

"Mary Margaret is an absolutely stellar guide and consultant. If you seek to embody something unique she is a force to have by your side. She partners well, has advanced listening skills, and keen vision about what is possible.


She has helped me see myself from a new perspective, enhance my online presence, improve my outlook at work, and come up with a timeline for a book that I had been struggling with for 5+ years.


I highly value the time I have spent with Mary Margaret and recommend her to anyone who wants to enjoy their life and have impact through their work."

Financial Services Professional

New Jersey

"I started working with Mary Margaret before the pandemic hit and I was moving in one direction and then during quarantine I had to pivot and she supported me through it all.

Working with Mary Margaret helped me in ways I did not expect but deeply needed.


With the experience she brings, Mary Margaret has a unique gift to bring out your best."
