"'Record Breaking Participation' for SNA of NORTH DAKOTA when we Hired MGM 2 Years in a Row. MGM's General Session in 2014 was rated #1 by our membership.  Repeatedly, our members put on their evaluations:  BRING MGM BACK!  We Listened.  We brought MGM back for our 2015 SNA State Conference. We had Record Breaking Participation!  MGM Delivered with Back-to-back #1 Rated General Sessions.  MGM is a Passionate School Nutrition Cheerleader!"

"MGM has an amazing and unmatched energy and synergy with her audience. Her very positive, touching and simultaneously HYSTERICAL presentation resonated so deeply with me that I was moved to both laughter and tears.  MGM is so GENUINELY enthusiastic and connected to her message that she hijacks your endorphines, changes your paradigm and makes you want to run out of the conference hall and be the best whatever-you-happen-to-be! Very Impressed!" 

New Jersey Medical Group Management Association  (MGMA)

"MGM is absolutely the BEST motivational speaker on the subject of School Nutrition I've ever heard!! I especially LOVE how she knew what Child Nutrition employees deal with every day. MGM really hit the nail on the head at the Mississippi School Nutrition Association Annual Conference in Vicksburg, MS and at the School Nutrition Association (SNA) Annual National Conference in Denver, CO. At Both Conferences, MGM was the #1 Rated Speaker! No one can sit through her presentation and not be changed by her energy and passion."

Our administrative, certificated and classified staff were all able to identify with MGM's witty, yet concise message and had a great time laughing with her hilarious examples. MGM is a superb motivational presenter."

Nominated for Phoenix Panhellenic Association's

Woman of the Year 2014

I was thrilled when Maureen G Mulvaney, MGM, agreed that I could submit her name for Panhellenic Woman of the Year! I have known Maureen for over 25 years and I know her to be a true example of all that we wish to recognize when we choose these women.

As MGM’s resume shows, she has created a thriving business that promotes the values we all aspire to achieve. MGM is an accomplished speaker and author as a professional. She has helped us on numerous occasions locally and Nationally with workshops, training sessions, and as keynote. Her willingness to give of her time and talent has been generous. She has always been agreeable to share her ideas, books and experience with collegians and alumnae. She has given graciously whenever asked! I cannot think of a single time that she has not worked her schedule out so she could help.

Maureen is also an amazing role model to anyone. She has a beautiful adopted daughter, Mayre. She traveled to Vietnam to adopt Mayre when she was an infant. She embraced the constant challenges facing a single parent with a child with some special needs. I have been proud of her as a mom, as a professional, and as a sister. I am honored to have shared the journey with her. Mayre is now a wonderful mother to a young child who will turn one this month! I use this to show that MGM LIVES what she TEACHES.

I feel very strongly that MGM exemplifies that which we hope to show in the award. She sees the value of sorority in all its elements. I truly encourage you to choose her as she would make us proud! She is not only a Woman of the Year, but a Woman for a Generation
