Mentoring Women to Express
Their Vision in the World
Award-winning coach Mary O’Connor has helped more than 3,500 businesses accelerate their success, make a bigger impact and increase profitability. A sales expert with 30-plus years of experience, Mary has worked with companies such as KPMG, Genetech, YWCA, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, New Leaf Paper and Solar Sonoma County.
Growing up on Long Island as the oldest of nine children, Mary learned early on how to manage multiple priorities.
She worked her way through college tending bar and waiting tables and graduated with a degree in Anthropology. As an archeological specialist for the California Office of Historic Preservation, she achieved the remarkable feat of getting all of the archeological records from basement storehouses input into a central computer data base.
She discovered her passion for making the world a better place and determined to get into the solar industry. She got hired as the General Manager for a solar company in Sacramento, and turned that company around in one month. It was out of her commitment to promoting solar energy that Mary realized selling was both fun and lucrative, and she was good at it.
