I’d like help with…
When I can educate parents and/or grandparents on simple ways they can change out foods with visible and positive impact on the overall family, it is the greatest satisfaction. It is a major turning point for a young person, with the support of their family to understand that their choices have real consequences to the quality of their life. That comes through my practice of education and advocacy. The satisfaction of family is further bolstered when it allows that young person to lose a label that unnecessarily diminishes their ability to feel accepted and normal. I’ve learned that now, more than ever before, families are frustrated and confused on how to mitigate behavior issues. They are seeking common sense solution that treat the root cause and someone that supports their journey. I am repeatedly honored to contribute to a better life for these families.
An interesting, or unusual fact(s) about me…
Mary has an extensive educational background in holistic, complementary/alternative medicine, and education providing the foundation for her work in holistic nutrition and as a CAM practitioner.

A career highlight
Honestly, anytime I see the light return to a child's eyes I am renewed and remember why I'm in this business.
