Marilyn is the founder of Love Lead Connect Coaching, training people in the essential skills to have powerful, sustaining relationships in every area of life.
After navigating her own journey of love, Marilyn is passionate about helping other women create their journey home to love. As challenging is it can be to find a healthy partner, the skills for attracting and making that commitment are only the beginning. Marilyn guides women on this journey to lasting love and partnership first with themselves, then with their partner. Her relationship program “Your Journey to Lasting Love” for women is where you connect first to yourself, develop the inner skills needed to rewrite beliefs and habits that sabotage love and connection, and intentionally connect with your partner. New habits bring self-confidence, gratitude, emotional resilience, forgiveness, kindness, communication, and feeling comfortable in your body (sexually and sensually).
She had a 17-year career at IBM including as a manager, lead trainer, marketer to federal government leaders, project manager and “relationship fixer.” After obtaining a Master’s degree in Organizational Development, she joined Accenture as a Change Management Specialist. She had her own consulting business for years, consulting in change, organizational design, strategic planning, management and human resources.
Marilyn’s business success comes from her love-based leadership approach. In business, she coaches managers to embody leadership habits for success, to create an organizational culture that is aligned with their purpose, and to successfully lead change built on trust and communication. She helps employees discover how to show up as leaders in their teams and organization (no matter what their title) and build solid professional relationships within and outside of their organization.
Her “Effective Communication: Deeper Connections” program (for men and women) puts you on the path to master the skills for how to speak so others listen and how to listen to create more connection and intimacy with the people you care about – in your personal and professional life!

“Marilyn is an amazing coach with a deep understanding of relationships. After struggling with a blended family, Marilyn showed me how to create a home that was more open and understanding. Her practices for gratitude created a stronger bond between not only my husband and I but also my children. I have come to see that even my children’s bonds with each other strengthened and they have been kinder and more loving to each other. Marilyn’s course has created an invaluable impact on my life, and I couldn’t be more grateful!”
