Mary Beth is truly a remarkable individual and her coaching was invaluable. I learned to identify barriers to my own growth and fulfillment, to recognize what was truly important to me and where my passion is. She helped me harness my unique strengths to further my performance. I now see myself and others more objectively. I appreciate choice as leading to intention and possibility rather than right or wrong. Mary Beth has a keen understanding of human nature, is genuine and insightful. She is skilled at asking challenging questions and is direct yet tactful.
