Mary Bullard

Born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada, where hard work and loyalty are highly valued, Mary grew up with that core belief and applies it to every area of her life. In all professional positions that she takes throughout her life, Mary’s love of people drives her to help others.

Mary started her career in the customer service industry which led to jobs in business administration, real estate and project and property management. She had worked hard for 20 years, 17 hours a day, raising two children on her own. And according to Mary, “no matter how hard I worked, I couldn’t get ahead financially.”

Due to an economic downturn in the economy and Mary’s employer closing down her business, Mary found herself without a job, for the very first time in her life! There were massive layoffs and many bankruptcies affecting the local economy of 32,000 people; unemployment was high and jobs were scarce. Racking up credit card debt, Mary Bullard, single mom of two incredible teenage boys, decided to find an income opportunity. She had heard of people making money online through network marketing so she spent 12 months researching and interviewing 29 companies before she finally found the ONLY one that felt right to her. This company matches Mary’s values and her vision of helping other people, through love, respect, and partnership. Mary went from broke to a global leader and million-dollar income earner within 5 years, and she continues to create 6-figure income earners globally.

Jen Greb

Jen Greb is a global, at home, entrepreneur, wife and mother of six. She has spent the last fifteen years building businesses and fostering relationships around the country in the direct selling and referral marketing industries. Her passion is helping people maximize their strengths to their fullest potential. It is her joy to guide and support people, especially as it relates to building their financial futures.

She spent the first five years of her professional career in corporate America with an executive search firm staffing both technology and executive positions in the software industry and start up sector. At 26 years old, she left the “American Dream” where she was earning an incredible income so that she could focus on, in her opinion, the most important job in her life, to be a mom.

When she left the corporate world, she sought out opportunities to grow personally and professionally and create options for others who were missing time, money, or freedom in their lives. She has spent more than fifteen years focused on other people’s successes, supporting and guiding them as well as enjoying the life and role of professional entrepreneurial mom at home.

This position with Igniter of Hope continues to fulfill her passion for helping others grow and succeed beyond what they believe is possible for themselves. It is her joy to help clients connect with Igniter of Hope programs. These programs are connecting people to the true talent and capabilities that reside in themselves and helping them achieve Quantum Leaps in success!

Jen received her undergraduate degree in English and Business Management from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut.

Wendy Johnson

Dana Berg has essentially been a teacher & coach her entire life, with an amazing personal and professional history grounded in helping others. In the Army Reserves for 8 years, first as a medic, then commissioned an officer after becoming a Nurse, Dana became what her family always knew her to be… a gift to those in need. Although her support of others has taken many forms throughout her life, here at IOH we are most enthralled with the culmination of those experiences, exemplified in Dana’s strength of character & intuition.

Dana has been a Registered Nurse now for 25 years, working in both Emergency and Labor and Delivery, where she has done her fair share of coaching! She consistently receives letters of gratitude from former patients expressing their appreciation for the care she provided, a true testament to her ability to connect and support, even under some of the most intense circumstances. She has also taught numerous prenatal classes, as she has a natural affinity for teaching & speaking.

In addition to her amazing career, Dana volunteered with the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce for several years in their Customer Service Excellence Program, where she was able to go out into the community & present awards to individuals who had gone above and beyond… a truly soul-nourishing opportunity of bestowing gratitude on others. Currently, Dana volunteers for PAYBAC, a program through her local public school district, where she speaks with the student body about staying in school, staying inspired, & following their dreams.

Dana’s love of inspiring young people stems from an early age, as she remembers being passionate about the Law of Attraction & being exposed to motivational speakers like Zig Ziglar by her father as just a young girl. Studying Bob Proctor and becoming a TIR consultant was a natural progression for Dana, & she embraces a personal philosophy to ‘Live, Love, & Teach the program!’ For this we are beyond grateful to have Dana as an integral part of our Igniter of Hope Team!!

Dana has 4 amazing children, and has hosted 3 foreign exchange students, each for an entire school year. A trio of wonderful experiences for her family, they remain very close with their student guests, and Dana truly believes that expanding her children’s knowledge of the world & how others live has been priceless. All of Dana’s gifts, both innate & learned, come together in this, her most treasured role of Mom.

Suzanne

In Suzanne’s words: “It’s all about Empowerment. Let’s empower ourselves to do amazing things - things that are important to us. We do not find our purpose in our to-do lists… Rather, we discover our purpose, we discover ourselves, when we truly follow our passions! When you are working towards something BIG you feel ALIVE! Where is the adventure in playing safe? Are you ready to wake up in the morning and feel excited about your goals and dreams?!?!”

And Suzanne believes in walking her talk. In 2001, Suzanne and her husband Shawn packed up their two children in their SUV and headed south to Mexico. Despite knowing only a little Spanish, they sought a new playground and the adventure of exploring Puerto Vallarta on the west coast. After a year, Suzanne and her family set off to the Caribbean coast and Playa del Carmen, allowing their desires and passions to lead the way. With her children now grown and having moved back to Canada to create new experiences on their own, Suzanne and her husband have trekked back across the Mexican countryside to the wine valley. This time, they find themselves in Valle de Guadalupe, Baja California, in search of the perfect property to build Suzanne’s dream of owning a B&B and retreat.

Suzanne’s passion for life and adventure, coupled with her business and entrepreneurial background, make her a perfect fit for our team here at Igniter of Hope. With a degree in Marketing Management, Suzanne has worked in retail management, managed a chain of drugstores, and even hit one of the highest ranks in a network marketing company, which she started so that she could be home with her children. She has been a life coach, business coach, and relationship coach for the past 20 years, and is a certified PGI Thinking Into Results facilitator. And her coaching style? Everything can be done with ease, flow, joy, and love.

Suzanne has been studying the mind since she was 16 years old, and is often heard asking; “What is your bright, BOLD, beautiful dream? What’s holding you back from living it? Let’s find out together, because it’s time to LIVE it!”
