She earned her Bachelor’s degree at Harvard University and a Master’s degree at Antioch New England Graduate School, where she studied Organization & Management as well as Environmental Studies. Mary is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coach Federation and a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) through the Coaches Training Institute. She currently coaches people in leadership roles across a wide variety of industries.
