Mary found sobriety in 2013 at the age of 53. Like many women, she had a long love affair with alcohol that eventually turned destructive and harmful. In her mid-fifties – married to a workaholic and with two children in their late teens who didn’t need her as much – Mary frequently found herself depressed because she felt she had no purpose in life. She sought out and found sobriety and is currently writing her next chapter. Her mission is to help women realize that it is never too late to rewrite your story, and that it is possible to live an alcohol-free life in mid-life and beyond. Mary isn’t currently taking clients but is a much-loved volunteer facilitator of SHE RECOVERS Together Zoom Gatherings.
