What Clients Say About Working With Mary
" Mary Fowler brings such a depth of experience
to her teaching and training sessions that make her an invaluable guide to any program. Whether it be mindfulness or trauma-informed teaching, or practical ways for self-care, Mary offers highly interactive methods and is a great listener. With our AmeriCorps team, during the height of the COVID pandemic, Mary was our Go-To person to make sure that members serving the neediest students in our schools did not neglect to take care of themselves. The fact they got through such a challenging year is because Mary was there to support them.”
