Falling into Opportunities with Mary Barbera
What if you had a powerful mission to reach millions of people with a message? My guest today, Dr. Mary Barbera, has had an unconventional path to becoming an evangelist to help turn autism around. She went from nurse to occupational therapist to PhD to international speaker, author, podcaster, and course creator, and she has done most of this in her forties and fifties.
Dr. Mary Barbera has changed careers several times over the decades and started in the online marketing space in the autism world in 2015 at the age of 50.
