Marie Schumacher

As an educator, arts entrepreneur, and long-time musician, I am dedicated to helping people find their creative voices and design lives that are deeply meaningful. Whether you're an artist, a teacher, an entrepreneur, or a nonprofit leader, we can work together to unlock your creativity and leverage it for your personal and professional growth. With backgrounds in education, psychology, organizational management, and the arts, I bring a unique perspective to our work. I've helped hundreds of people tap into their creative voices, finish artistic projects, develop strategic plans, produce curriculum, and move forward on creative goals that really matter to them. I offer a proven process that will empower you to dream, plan, learn, practice, and progress to the next level.

creative hands

Are you looking to tap into your creative energy and apply it to your artistic work, your career, or your life path? A little creativity coaching can cultivate a more intuitive and abundant mindset.


I work with musicians, artists, writers, and other creatives to help them leverage their confidence, manage their projects, and move through the blocks and anxieties along the path. I also offer sessions in singing, songwriting, arranging, recording, and performance.

wings of inspiration, empowerment and independence

I'm a teacher at heart, and I have worked with adults and kids of all ages, as a classroom teacher and as a teaching artist. While the bulk of my education work has revolved around music, I've also developed curriculum in Personal Development, Psychology, Parent Education, English for Speakers of Other Languages, Math, Science and Reading. 

I partner with teachers to lighten their loads and provide time and space for them to clarify purpose and vision. In addition to coaching, I provide research, slide preparation, and other time-saving services for you, so that you have more creative energy to share with your students. 

creative team meeting with post-its

I’ve spent much of my career leading my own social enterprise and playing a management role within others. This informs my work as I help other organizations and entrepreneurs succeed. I've helped organizations as a strategic planning partner, a meeting facilitator, a short-term project manager, and a human resources consultant.

David S,

Marketing Executive,

Dedicated Vocalist

"From chaos to calm!  Working with Marie has been such a great experience.  As a marketing executive with decades of experience, I love working with up and coming professionals and mentoring their progress in our organization.  That said, I often find it difficult to provide that same service to myself and see through the clutter of choices when it comes to my own career and life path.  Marie provided a great framework to help me turn that chaos into a calm, rational approach to some challenging choices (and opportunities) that lay ahead. " 

Sam A, 

College Professor and

Research Professional

"Working with Marie was incredibly helpful for me as I navigated a major professional shift. My career in academia trained me to see only one way forward, but she helped me gain a better vantage point to consider my priorities and options more clearly. Her empathetic approach was exactly what I needed and gave me new ways of thinking not only about my career but also this phase of my life. I felt much more grounded and confident after each of our conversations."

"Marie is a bright, warm, and compassionate person who has helped me navigate job changes, personal growth, and the launching of young adult children in very challenging times.  She is gifted with a natural ability to listen, sort, and rephrase what you shared with her, offering seamless transitions to different ways of approaching a problem or challenge. Coaching/consulting is the perfect path for Marie. Join her there and see where she takes you!"

Amy G,

Writer, Teacher,

Curriculum Designer,

Visual Artist

“The monthly meetings of my “Year of Art” group have been a nourishing place to return to, a regular time to check in on my progress on various creative projects,  and a time to connect with and be inspired by the insights of other artists.  I’m amazed by how many gems of insight have resulted from these meetings, and the ways these insights have moved me forward in my creative pursuits.  I come away from the meetings feeling energized, inspired, and with clarity about next steps."

Jo Z, 


Photographer, Storyteller

"My work with Marie over the past few years has been full of learning, fun, and personal growth compost.   I went to her for creativity coaching, and the right side of my brain exploded! She helped me to see the possibilities in the various creative activities that I wanted to explore. She also helped me to understand that my creative work is a feasible part of my life’s journey."

Mar W,



“Marie is a careful and empathetic listener and she knows how to inspire, support, and bring out the artist. I leave our sessions fortified emotionally and artistically. She really is gifted and generous. She changed my life.”
