    With a passion born of experience as a medical professional, Mary LoVerde takes on the challenges posed by the strains and tensions that often develop between our personal and professional lives. Her consulting work and keynote speeches offer numerous insights and ideas for making small changes that can add up to a less anxious, more connected, more fulfilling life. LoVerde's message of connection and personal empowerment have inspired diverse audiences large and small, and major corporations such as AT&T, Proctor and Gamble, Lucent Technologies, and the Mayo Clinic. Mary's drive to re-connect people is also seen in her role as the spokesperson for Camp to Belong, a nationally recognized non-profit which reunites brothers and sisters separated by placement in different foster homes.

    For fifteen years, as a busy mother with a demanding career on the faculty of the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Director of the Hypertension Research Center, Mary LoVerde tried the 'superperson' route -- and failed.

    Struggling valiantly to keep up, she turned to time management, prioritizing, delegating, and simplifying. Yet, she continued to feel overwhelmed and torn apart. One day, while furiously working away at her computer and shouting at the kids to keep their distance, she realized a startling fact. In her zeal to get everything done, she had become disconnected -- from her family, from her work, and from the person she was and wanted to be. LoVerde adopted a new life motto: When you can?t keep up, CONNECT. 

    A dynamic international speaker, consultant, and writer, LoVerde is President of Life Balance, Inc. a company devoted to spreading the message of finding balance through connection. She speaks to diverse audiences across the country and also shares her empowering strategies with dozens of major corporations including AT&T, Merck and Company, Proctor and Gamble, Discover Card, Hallmark, Lucent Technologies, and the Mayo Clinic. 

    Author of Stop Screaming at the Microwave! How to Connect Your Disconnected Life (Simon & Schuster, 1998) and contributor to the best-selling inspirational collections, Chocolate for a Woman's Soul and Chocolate for a Woman's Heart, LoVerde has touched many readers with her stories -- including her gift of a "Memory Jar," filled with handwritten reminiscences, to her mother. She presents a wealth of uplifting insights and innovative ideas for taking small steps in the right direction for a less stressful, more satisfying life. 

    Inspired by her mother, who was separated from her sisters and put into foster care at the age of nine, LoVerde is the national spokesperson for Camp to Belong, which reunites brothers and sisters placed in different foster homes for events of fun, emotional empowerment and sibling connection. She is blessed with family (her husband of twenty-one years, Joe, and their three children, Sarah, Emily and Nicholas), a rewarding career and a sense of personal fulfillment. LoVerde makes time to share family meals (though she hates to cook and considers pizza today's pot roast), establish new family rituals (like feasting on gourmet takeout and singing carols by candlelight on Christmas Eve), and cheering each other on and laughing together -- even when she's on the road and far from their home in Aurora, Colorado.
