You Have a God-given message

Let’s Get You Booked to

Share it on the stage

Hi there,

I’m Mary – a true southerner who loves the indoors. Yes, that’s right; the indoors. I like a comfortable chair and some AC. Have you been to the South in the summer? It’s like living in hot soup. I do appreciate a great view and enjoy sipping a sparkling soda on my deck, but only when the humidity is low and the temperature is comfortable.

I’m passionate about my Jesus, my people, travel, my work with speakers, and finding the next great thing. Whether gadget, app, tool, or resource; I’m an early adopter! When I’m not working, you’ll find me snuggled up on the couch with my guy and our two rescue dogs, Butch and Toby, reading a great business book.

Over 20 years of working with speakers

Hundreds of stages & Messages – I LOVE what I do!

I coach speakers who are looking to move forward in their careers and create messages that make a difference. I also host the Take the Stage podcast, where we meet weekly and discuss the speaking life with those who know it best…speakers!

I’d love to help you, too! I’m all about sharing my ideas, so let’s talk about your message and how to make it better.

Let’s move your career forward by finding your perfectly unique stage.


with Mary

Do you have a message you need to share?

Are you a Christian speaker who loves communicating with the audience and is looking to grow?

Do you want to move beyond a few events a year to a full-time speaking career?

Are you a speaker who needs someone to hold you accountable to a vision, a plan, and a purpose?

Let me walk alongside you.

I have a bit of experience…

I’ve loved talking and sharing stories for as long as I can remember. In fact, my sixth-grade teacher often commented on my love of speaking…and those comments were usually on my report card.

Over the past two decades, I’ve personally been on the stage and spoken to thousands. I’ve also worked with some of the most talented Christian speakers in the industry, as I’ve coached them on their message, developed speaker tours, and created one-night events around a central message. I have loved every part of it and still do.

Now, it’s your turn.

Allow me to put all that experience into helping you set the stage. We will work together as you craft your message and I’ll be there to guide you as you prospect for speaking opportunities. Sounding board, navigator, cheerleader, and accountability partner, all rolled into one…I’ll be there, in the wings, as your career takes the spotlight and you take the stage.

Do you know God has called you to share a message?  Are you struggling to determine your next step or maybe the first step?  You’re in the right place.  I was just where you are over 20 years ago — trying to figure out how to get started. 

Join me as as I share the ins and outs of starting a speaking ministry.  I’ll talk with some of the best-known speakers in the industry and learn everything from how they got started to what they would do differently, and all the ups, downs, and navigating tips in between. It’s a deep dive into the speaking and a discussion of the things that matter to you and your career — and I’ll link arms with you and  walk alongside you and help you Take the Stage.
