about us


Mary Ellen draws on the expertise of her associates for a well-rounded perspective.
She often co-leads mindfulness training and leadership development engagements.

As a Project Manager for an oil & gas company leading architectural projects for the refineries, Priscilla realized human relationships are the most common source of project over-runs.

Bringing that experience with her, she shifted gears to commit to embodying mindfulness and emotional intelligence skills. Incorporating her 15 years of working for world-class enterprises in Mexico, Priscilla teaches mindfulness and emotional intelligence in the context of leadership and culture development.

She has her own business Arc Esprit, and is a certified Teacher for the Search Inside Yourself Program in English, French and Spanish (multi-lingual maven that she is!).
