Partnering in your Potential
Marianna Henry is a Utah-based Academic, Career, ADHD, and Strengths Success Coach, who provides high-quality, holistic support to teens and adults.
Marianna follows a holistic and strengths-based coaching paradigm. As a member of the International Coaching Federation, she also follows the ICF Code of Ethics and Core Competencies. She creates an environment of belonging, authenticity, open-mindedness, accessibility, and inclusion.
Coaching is a collaborative effort, a partnership which requires non-judgment, trust, communication, and empathy. Every background, character, strength, and story is different – there is no one-size-fits-all approach. She loves helping clients, students, teams, and organizations implement a strengths-based mindset and culture.
Marianna is a first-generation American; her family hails from Poland (yes, she speaks Polish)! She is originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan. When her partner was hired as a tenure-track professor at Utah Valley University, she transferred from Grand Valley State University and soon graduated with a bachelor's degree in Communication: Public Relations. Marianna earned a Master's of Professional Studies: Social Entrepreneurship from Fort Hays State University, studying sociology and nonprofit leadership & organization.
Marianna enjoys singing, planning events, reading, supporting local theatre, Halloween, yoga, camping, home improvement, Disneyland, Star Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and traveling in the U.S. and abroad. She and her partner have four great kids, a big red dog, and a fluffy sassy cat!
