professional success. Her background includes over 25 years in nonprofit, corporate
and government relations leadership. Mara led both a national and state non-profit

various roles have helped her understand the importance of performance coaching to
manifest positive changes and meet objectives.

While enjoying her career, Mara was on a personal journey to learn how ancient
cultures addressed health, wellbeing and wholeness. She had the pleasure to train with
Qigong Masters, Reiki Masters, Lakota Native American healers, as well as integrative
healthcare professionals. Mara became ordained through a two-year seminary program
focused on interfaith-interspiritual practices. Her studies have included modalities such
as meditation, mindfulness, reflexology and more. She is currently affiliated with the
GW Center for Integrative Medicine and has overseen alternative health offerings at

evidence-based research is an excellent place to begin a person’s journey.
Her goal at True North is advocating for a person’s success by emphasizing passions,
wellness, wholeness and performance.
