About Me

I am a Certified Professional Coach, a member of the International Coaching Federation, an Energy Leadership Index (ELI) Master Practitioner, a Certified CRAFT Peer Coach trained by the Partnership to End Addiction and a Certified Trainer in the Invitation to Change Approach by the CMC: Foundation for Change. I hold a BA in English Literature from SUNY Binghamton.

I am the grateful mother of a sober son. While I know a guarantee card stating he will stay sober for life doesn’t come with each sober chip he earns, I remain hopeful that the sober days, months and years will continue to string together. Miracles happen and he is my miracle.

I am a writer, currently working on my forthcoming memoir, Near Miss, about coming through life's adversities, including ovarian cancer and a major stroke, with hope, faith and humor intact.

Cancer Revisited, an essay from my memoir, was published by a major literary magazine Brain, Child: The Magazine for Thinking Mothers.

The Haircut, another essay from my memoir  published by Mamalode, can be found here.

Handyman  Hazards, published by The Good Men Project, can be found here.

Mary Ann's knowledge, coaching methods

and personal experience gave me hope again.
