Mary Anne K. Moran was born in Windsor Ontario Canada, to an Irish father and Italian mother. Although her birth took place in Canada, she was raised in Detroit Michigan from infanthood until her late teens, when as a result of her father’s dependence on Kidney Dialysis, a decision was made to move to Ontario.
From an early age her love of writing and speaking was evident. Always the first to volunteer to step to the front of the class for speeches, and anxiously waiting for any assignment requiring story writing or essays. Those who know her will attest to the fact that the “gift of the gab” flows freely when given the opportunity to “let it go”.
Professionally… her experience in the Natural Health Industry spans more than two and a half decades. She has held executive sales, management, and educational positions, with such companies as GNC, Beverly Hills Weight Loss Clinics, and served as Canadian Director of Education and Communication for Garden of Life Inc. Her experience in lecturing, teaching, and ministry, spans the USA, Canada, and Central America.
Personally… Mary Anne resides in Barrie, Ontario Canada. She is the mother of three grown married daughters, and is perfecting her spoiling techniques on her five perfect grandchildren.
In 2011 Mary Anne suffered the tragic and unexpected loss of her husband Michael after nearly 30yrs. of marriage.
In 2014 after surfacing from a journey through intense grief, and re-inventing herself, Mary Anne realized life was not meant to merely “survive” but to “thrive”. She began writing again, and seeking new venues for speaking and influencing the people placed before her. Her warm personality, sense of humour, practical approach to life, along with her uninhibited, spontaneous displays of love, towards even the remotest stranger, makes her a very sought after speaker.
