Introduction: “Change is painful, but nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong” Mandy Hale. I have extensive coaching experience in career management, career development, and life transitions. As a former HR executive, I have experience in leadership and understand the benefits of a focused resume, cover letter and LinkedIn presence. Growth in life often requires a coach to help navigate in a changing world. We will work collaboratively on your intentions and build a plan that works for you. As your coach, I’m in your corner; working towards showcasing the best version of your talents and skills, both professionally and personally.

Life Coaching

I would highly recommend Mary as a life coach. While I felt inundated by the unforeseeable future, she helped me see that everything you are searching for starts within. What you discover within, is what will be your light that will guide you to what you need and value. She is wise, authentic, insightful, and genuinely kind.

Absolutely Amazing & Phenomenal! Mary is one of the best coach I came across. She is so kind, positive, and encouraging that motivates me to see things out of the box. She helped me improvise my cover letter, resume, LinkedIn profile with multiple reviews until I was satisfied. I really appreciate all your help Mary. I highly recommend her for any coaching related advice.

This was my first experience on Thumbtack and I can't say enough good about Mary. She was kind, friendly, positive, uplifting and encouraging. Her outlook on everything was so optimistic. I truly appreciated her "life coaching" and look forward to contacting her again regarding career moves. Absolutely awesome!!!

Resume Writing

Mary's background and experience was perfectly tailored to my needs. At this point in my life, I'm looking to transition into a job that is more meaningful to me. Although I've been doing volunteer work, I have gaps in my resume from time-off as a stay-at-home Mom...It's been 10 years since I've worked professionally. I knew that my resume was beyond out-of-date, but I didn't know where to begin. Mary helped me craft a resume focused on the skill-sets needed for the job I WANT...Letting go of the corporate-speak and old-school formatting. Her suggestions were spot-on, and brought my unique skills to the forefront...Which included volunteer work I never would have considered including! She's a pro, warm, friendly, encouraging and accessible. I highly recommend Mary for career advice and help with resume writing.

Mary is one of the most insightful, sensitive and intuitive coaches I’ve worked with in my career. She brings a generosity of spirit, time and energy that you simply don’t see in other coaches. She listens intently and gives simple, to the point, yet incredibly personal guidance based on her personal experiences, insight and training. I would highly recommend her!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My fees are based on number of sessions. You pay less hourly if you sign up for at least 3 hours.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The initial call, to determine whether it’s a good fit for everyone, is free. If the client selects me, the client will receive details around my role; their role and expectations. If they agree, they will receive a contract and an invoice.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a masters in HR Development; over 300 hours of yoga training; specialized training in moving beyond trauma. I’m a graduate of Raleigh Coaching Academy focused on authentic leadership. I’m also a Veteran.
