After a decades long marriage and raising 4 great kids, Marie faced a complicated divorce. Watching other women make mistakes they regretted for the rest of their lives inspired her to become her own best advocate. Marie read everything she could get her hands on regarding divorce, and told friends she was getting a “master’s degree in divorce." She emerged stronger and wiser and wanting to help others survive their divorces emotionally and financially intact. CDC Divorce Coach Training further expanded on what she’d learned in her personal experience, adding to professional degrees in Pharmacy, Religious Studies, Bereavement Studies and Life Coaching. Years of training and working as a hospital chaplain, listening and companioning people through the worst crises life has to offer gave Marie the skills to help clients face divorce, companioning them before, during and after.
