About Mary Foley
Bodacious Mary Foley believes that successful careers don’t just happen — they are engineered. That’s why she has combined her engineering education, passion for inspiring professional women, and two decades of live program experience to help women create the careers they really want.
Mary began sharing career advice after her 10-year career at AOL – when AOL was cool – where she started as an $8 an hour customer service rep and rose to become the company’s first head of corporate training.
Known for her uncommon insights, candidness and humor, Mary is the author of three books including Bodacious! Career: Outrageous Success for Working Women, featured blogger on WorkingMother.com, and former co-host of the Girlfriend We Gotta Talk radio show.
As a facilitator and speaker, she energizes women with practical advice to increase their confidence, expand their influence, and thrive on change. Regardless of her engineering background, no matter what Mary’s doing, she absolutely refuses to wear a pocket protector.
In a surprising turn of events, Mary appeared on the cover of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine and was spoofed on the E! Entertaining TV show The Soup. She will tell you how that happened over a glass of wine.
