About Dr. Mary Schoenfeldt

Mary was an 18 year old frightened college freshmen who lived on vending machine food late at night because she was too shy to come out of her dorm room except to go to classes. And a 30 year old single mom who fished and traded them to others to feed her kids. And a 40 year pioneer in a field no one even had a name for...School Crisis Management. And a woman in her 60s getting her PhD and being inducted into the Hall of Fame by the International Network of Women In Emergency Management. And now, a woman just shy of 70 years old, Mary is influencing people around the world through speaking engagements, videos, on line courses and acting as Subject Matter Expert to FEMA, US Department of Education, Homeland Security just to name a few. She also is a ventriloquist, and if you listen carefully, you just might be too!
