“Marian’s authentic approach to sharing what it means to live a Thriver lifestyle is thought provoking and invigorating! Even though her programming is focused on women’s’ empowerment, and mental health & wellness, I can attest that I took away much from her presentation at our March 2019 leadership development event. I came away from the event with new approaches to relieving some of the stresses of day to day living and bringing better balance into my life. I know that many of our members are looking forward to learning more from Marian!” – Lance Hong, LA Chapter President and SoCal Board Member – National Association Of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP)

“Marian taught a meditation workshop and lead the closing meditation for the Brand New Mornings Conference. Her gifts lie in shifting energy in a room, captivating people and making the subject matter accessible to many different types of people, and this was just what the conference needed. She empowered the audience through compassion and enthusiasm. Marian is fantastic to work with — professional, positive and personable.”  – Nadia Payan, Founder of Brand New Mornings Conference

“Marian spoke and facilitated a meditation/mindfulness workshop at our Annual Board Leadership Retreat. We found her to be very engaging and authentic with a passion for educating leaders about mental health, meditation, and wellness. Through her work, the national leadership team walked away with a new set of tools that they could integrate into their own lives and infuse into members of their team in the various chapters, as well as solid and focused start to our weekend of meetings and activities. Days after the workshop, senior members in attendance were still discussing her work with us, and each of our chapter presidents expressed enthusiasm at working with her going forward.”  Nirendran Kathirithamby, National President and Board Member – Project by Project, Inc.
