Mary Ellen holds an MA in Mediation and Conflict Intervention from the Edward M Kennedy Institute, Maynooth University (2015).
Since 2015 Mary Ellen has been in the practice of mediation, organisational conflict management and conflict transformation. Mary Ellen employs a variety of methodologies and experiences to work with individuals to help them identify the root causes of their conflicts, thus helping to improve their self- awareness, emotional intelligence and conflict competence. She is a consultant of the Conflict Dynamics Profile (CDP) which is a workplace behavioural diagnostic tool as well as a certified CINERGY Conflict Management Coach.
Her passion for conflict resolution and transformation extends larger than commercial and person-organisation conflicts to community mediation and peace building. Mary Ellen is currently co-leading the Mediators Beyond Borders International (MBBI) project in Kenya.
