I'm Maria, a blissful, business-minded, yoga-adoring, travel-happy, easily amused, animal-loving, artsy optimist who loves helping people lead happy and fulfilling lives and reach their professional mountaintop. I own Thrive Coaching & Development.
As a Mindful Career Coach, I specialize in helping individuals thrive personally and professionally, infusing elements of mindfulness to help clients really dig deep and get clear on their goals, dreams and anything standing in their way. My passion is helping go-getters transform their lives; identify and launch a new career; or prepare themselves for work that enriches their goals, finances, personality and lifestyle.
I love my work because seeing people thrive is beyond satisfying, and when one person thrives, the world is that much a better place! I've had times in my life where I haven't thrived, places I've lived that weren't a great fit, and jobs that were fine but weren't an optimal match for my talents, creativity and goals. I know what it's like not to thrive, and thankfully I also know how truly fabulous thriving can be, and exactly how to help others feel the same way. Read more about my story, teaching, coaching, mindfulness, training and outcomes, and how we can work together to thrive!
P.S. Thank you to my awesome dogs, who are sprinkled generously throughout this site. No doggy stock photos needed when the real deals help me thrive all the time!
