My Story

Hi. I’m Mari. And I spent 25 years in the wrong profession. What made me leave? I wish I could say that I left them wanting more after Jesus spoke to me in a dream and I repented of my shallow ways…But the truth is, God knows how scrappy and determined I am. He knew I would never leave, unless He made it impossible for me to stay.

Life Is Short

IT SHOULDN’T SUCK.

At the intersection of passion, clarity, intention & grit is a story that is unmistakably you. My passion is galvanizing people to action by sharing stories of resilience and transformation. Stories connect and inspire. Stories bring hope when we identify with a character who achieves great things in spite of tremendous obstacles. Stories give our spirit the gift of grace when we can finally say “I thought I was the only one.”

It would be an honor to speak at your next event on these topics.
