Hello, I’m Marvis, Divorce Support and Life Success Coach.
I help women struggling to SURVIVE the divorce process.
I am a Certified Divorce Coach (CDC) and a Certified Life Coach. As such, I am held to a very high standard of education and ethics. I am required to keep up with continuing education and as a member of the coaching community, I pride myself on being confidential, honest, and objective.
When we work together, I’ll help you take the first step. I’ll help you gain clarity and confidence and ask for what you need. We’ll discuss your fears and concerns, such as your financial future, a change in your living conditions, perceptions of others as a “divorced woman,” and worries about being loved again. We’ll address concerns for those with children, such as “how will my children adjust to our divorce, to having two homes, and two sets of rules?
FUN FACTS ABOUT ME
IF I WASN´T A COACH..
I might retire. I worked hard my entire life, from babysitting at the age of 12 to my first job as a waitress at 16. I have owned 3 successful bakeries and managed a crew of 24 in a supermarket bakery.
I want to support other women struggling to get out of a toxic marriage, and honestly, I do not see myself as being old!
MY FAV MUSIC BANDS..
I love country music and love seeing live concerts such as Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, and Dolly Parton, to name a few. My hidden desire is to have a conversation with Reba McIntire!
For comedy, Randy Rainbow is my guy. One day I would love to have coffee with his mother.
I'M MOST THANKFUL FOR...
My family. I have been blessed with a second chance. Counseling and coaching helped me realize nothing is *perfect*, but we find our way.
My daughters have forgiven my mistakes as a parent, those real and imagined! One bonus son understands the truth of his parent’s divorce, and we have three beautiful grandchildren.
MY FAVORITE PASS TIMES
I enjoy knitting and crocheting. The hubby and I enjoy fishing. Spending time with the grandkids is at the top of my list. I’m also an avid reader, a few of my favorite authors are Rosamunde Pilcher, Philippa Gregory, and Calvin and Hobbs for laughs. To “relax my brain,” during the workday, I work on puzzles on the computer.
I LOVE TO TRAVEL...
The Hubby and I have been fortunate to travel. We have been to San Francisco, Colorado, Arizona, and our favorite, Las Vegas.
We have lived in beautiful “vacation spots” in NH, VT, MA, NY, and FL We are now planted in NC, and we will continue to travel the highways and byways of our beautiful country.
My passion is to be a great coach and to tell my story on stage. I want to continue to learn from my clients and develop greater skills in service to them.
My “outside the box dream” is to create a restaurant/group home for teens and young adults to teach them skills and provide guidance and job training in the restaurant industry.

She always helps me see the worst and then the best of what can happen...
Marvis has been coaching me off and on for several years. I reach out when I have a worry or problem I can’t seem to solve. She always helps me see the worst and then the best of what can happen, and it puts my perspective into focus.
When you see the flip side of things, it’s so much easier to figure out where you’re headed.
Once in a while, a person comes along who really gets what you’re going through and then turns it upside down. When you see the flip side of things, it’s so much easier to figure out where you’re headed.
