Productivity and Health Coach, Speaker, Author
Few people understand the corporate environment better than I do. As the Corporate Training Lead for the 3rd largest clinical research organization in the world, I co-created and facilitated a 4-week crash course for training new employees on technologies and processes. During my 13+ years in multiple business operations roles, I positioned myself as the go-to person for all things related to training staff on efficient technologies and processes. When I had climbed the corporate ladder as far as I wanted, I left to start my coaching business in 2013. I wrote the book on quitting while you’re ahead.
The pivotal moment for me was when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease triggered by my high stress, high-travel, corporate lifestyle. At the time, there wasn’t anyone out there educating people about how health affects productivity or how productivity affects health. I felt I had no choice, but to take matters into my own hands and do the research. After figuring out strategies and actionable steps to manage my own condition, it just made sense to turn those insights into a business coaching others. My struggles are now one of my clients’ greatest assets. I offer personalized support, accountability, and strategy to help others move the needle on their careers, their health, and their dreams. I absolutely love what I do for my clients and view my illness as a gift.
Some say staying fit and productive requires self-discipline, commitment, and willpower.
I believe staying fit and productive takes knowledge, support, and genuine behavior change.

Not only does Marcey talk the talk, but she walks the walk. As a road warrior for a decade, she will be the first to tell you that she made mistakes. All. Of. The. Mistakes. Then, she got it together. After realizing that to manage her chronic autoimmune condition she needed to make some serious changes, she got fit and healthy, while learning how to organize her time. Now she evaluates everything she does with a holistic approach and considers the long-term risks and benefits to her health, happiness, soul, and business. She encourages her clients to make a similar mindset shift.
Marcey qualified for the Boston Marathon and hiked the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim, among other physical accomplishments.

Given these incredible numbers, you’d be forgiven for thinking Marcey has unreasonably high expectations for others. But what stands out most when you speak to Marcey’s clients is how positive and non-judgmental Marcey is. She really is all about meeting you where you are and designing an individualized system that supports you.
Take a look at these case studies based on interviews with two of Marcey’s clients.
When I first saw you, Marcey, I remember thinking: this is the fittest person I have ever seen. I was so intimidated and was in such a bad place in my life at that time with work, health, and weight. Then I heard you talk and thought maybe you could help me. I am so glad I got past the intimidation and reached out. Meeting you has been really beneficial to me not only for taking charge of my health
