Empowering people to find their passion, help others and make a difference, has always been important to Mary. So when she discovered that Private Charitable Operating Foundations are a 501(c)(3) tool within which individuals and families can operate and affect challenges in society, she committed to supporting people by creating these entities and teaching them how to manage and run their own private charitable foundation. She is about access to transformational information, about offering opportunities for people to break up the human tendency to stay stuck in stagnant thinking, to understand how magnificent they really are, and about change to new perspectives and the resultant improvement in their own and other people's lives. Included in this mission was a move to Maui to create and empower a metaphysical and educational Center, involving people of all ages, providing healing modalities and personal development, organic farming and sustainability, horse therapy for children, and hosting conferences, workshops and seminars, to focus on assisting individuals to empower themselves to become the best they can be, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and dimensionally.

Additionally, Mary has studied the power of color to heal. She is a Certified International Consultant Teacher-Trainer with C. W. Designs, who pioneered the research into color as light and energy, wearing fabrics in your correct intensity empowers you inside and out. She also believes in holistic, alternative approaches to wellness and health, and she feels that everything is energy, that balancing the body biochemically and emotionally are major keys to feeling great. Every organ and body system has a unique energy frequency, and a biofeedback system she works with accomplishes a shift in frequencies. When such issues are corrected, people can come to feel wonderful again, energy up, excited about life and happier.
Mary is now a published author, with her first book, "CATYA Finding & Shifting What Still Holds You Back." She has an extensive background in business ownership, leadership training, networking, organization and management, financial concepts, education and fund-raising. She was editor of five published children’s books on American history.
Don't ask yourself what the world needs.
Ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. Harold Whitman
