Longtime writer, leadership/communications coach, and certified life coach Marybeth Cale loves to help people communicate and connect with confidence. Founder of Cale Communications + Estuary Leadership in Rhinebeck, New York, she uses her work as a platform to connect people to vision, ideas, causes, and ultimately, to one another. Marybeth has crafted scripts and helped produce storytelling videos, has written hundreds of op-eds, essays, and articles over the years, secured top-tier media placements for clients (who she's then prepped for interviews), and publishes a hyperlocal magazine called Living Rhinebeck. In addition, she works as a certified life coach - with clients one-on-one as they discover and clarify their personal and professional goals - as well as through group training and workshops she conducts for companies nationwide (specialty areas: self-confidence, communication, public speaking, and leadership).
Marybeth lives in her hometown of Rhinebeck in the beautiful Hudson Valley region of New York State with husband and business partner Tom Cale and their two children. She cherishes time with family and friends, and loves listening to live music, playing tennis, watching sunsets over the Hudson River, hiking, and volunteering. She's a graduate of St. Mary's College of Maryland (1996), Institute for Life Coach Training (2016), and has received the Citizen of the Year Award (2019), Top 40 Under 40 Award (2006), and Service Above Self Award (Wappingers Falls Rotary, 2003).

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
