Mary Abraham

is a writer, consultant and lifelong student of comparative religion, hailing from the hardest-working city in the world: Detroit, MI.

She believes that happiness is path, intuition is a tool, and work-life balance should be immediately discarded in favor of a more holistic, purpose-driven life.

ABOUT HER WORK

writer

Creatively, Mary is in the process of completing her first book, LIVING IN BLOOM, while also maintaining her blog, coauthored life. Professionally, Mary creates content for brands that spans traditional and digital platforms. She’s known for injecting “heart and soul” into brand strategy with her emotionally intelligent vision statements, mission statements and objectives. Always diligently focused on the audience at hand, Mary specializes in creating story arcs for clients that personally resonate with their audiences’ lives.

consultant

As a consultant, Mary offers clients nearly a decade and a half of marketing experience. She has worked with global brands in both agency and corporate environments. And now, she works with executives and business owners, helping them uncover the “root” of their purpose on both a business and human level. She produces strategic plans that build equity through digital and social media, editorial efforts and PR. The result is content that sings – it resonates with consumers, invites them into the narrative, and transforms a singular brand story into a shared story, with many authors.

how
she
got here

After years of compartmentalizing her “work” and “life,” Mary was finding it increasingly difficult to strike a balance between the two. So, she decided to ditch the balancing act altogether and design a new approach, one that would allow her to nourish all – not just some – aspects of her being.

in
bloom

Mary’s commitment to staying true to all of the authentic parts of herself eventually led to her upcoming book, LIVING IN BLOOM. Beyond the words that fill its pages is a life lived with courage and fortitude, and one that continues to blossom.

just
for
fun

Mary lives in Metro Detroit with the two loves of her life: her husband, Craig, and their dog, Jelly Bean. She often refers to herself as a “Creative Polygamist” committed to writing, strategy and even singing (she has a mean set of pipes). She’s an over-involved aunt to her niece and nephews, a Netflix junkie, Pinterest DIYer and weekend chocoholic.
