Hello, I’m Mary.

I transform overwhelmed people into superhero Simplifiers who then empower their team & grow their business.

Truth is, I get a little giddy when I see lightbulbs click on while I speak. It’s those moments where I know that I sparked a new idea, a new way of thinking for those in the audience. Love that.

Based in Frisco, Texas, but willing to travel all across the US, UK, and the world. My passion is to pay-it-forward to you, as my mentors have done the same for me over the last 20 years.  I promise to bring laughter and real tangible “gotta try this” ideas into my talks that will leave people buzzing with excitement.

Plus, I’m a hugger… so, when we meet, let’s hug it out, okay?

“Mary is such a fun presenter to listen to as well! She made what could’ve been a pretty dry topic very engaging and entertaining."
