After being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue, Mary Jane Brigger resigned from her successful 25-year career in corporate dental group practice management to focus on her health and recuperation. “During my convalescence, I was consciously led to study the mind/body connection to chronic illness and disease through author and mystic, Carolyn Myss,” said Ms. Brigger. “Soon after this, I started a career coaching business where my business coach hosted a conference call with two men in San Francisco who developed a mind/body healing method for entrepreneurs. Within two weeks I was on a plane to San Francisco where I spent the next three years studying with these modern-day shamans and mystics in mind/body healing and Reiki.”
I’m very personable with the ability to read other people’s energy with a powerful intuition. This enables me to zero in on the core of an individual’s problem or issues with the tools to help them.
Today, Ms. Brigger is Executive Director of Career Path Success, LLC, as well as a Women’s Empowerment Coach, Conscious Empowerment Consultant, and Reiki Master. Working with women who are dealing with serious issues as well as those who need help finding success and purpose in their personal and professional lives, she uses her business acumen and exceptional communication skills. “I’m very personable with the ability to read other people’s energy with a powerful intuition,” she said. “This enables me to zero in on the core of an individual’s problem or issues with the tools to help them.”
Ms. Brigger finds her career extremely rewarding because of the women with whom she gets to work. “They have taught me the resilience and strength of women to survive and thrive poor career and life experiences on their journey to becoming the women they were born to be,” she said. Her future plans include expanding her reach to even more women through writing, blogging, speaking engagements, workshops, webinars and online courses, as well as private and group retreats that include Sacred Empowerment Circles for Women.
