work with me


Blogger. Speaker. Organizer. Advocate. Essayist. These are just some of my past and current titles. I mostly write and share what it means to be a woman, an adoptee, a mom, and person of color. You can click here to see my past work or here to see what I’m up to lately.

“Mariette writes from the heart. Her author voice is a pleasure to read. It is polished, genuine, and committed to serve truth and understanding. She’s been a strong voice in the world of adoption and could use her writing in any venue.”

– Gayle Swift, Co-founder of GIFT Family Services, author of ABC, Adoption and Me: a Multicultural Picture Book

“As an adoptee, Mariette has a unique perspective on adoption and is a born storyteller with a lot of heart. I’ve always enjoyed reading her pieces, including the one she wrote for our blog, and strongly recommend her writing services if you’re looking for a passionate and committed writer.”

– Lawrence Morton, Director of Adoption Council of Canada and co-founder of Canada Adopts and America Adopts.

“Mariette writes words which both uplift and resonate with the soul. Her work moves and shifts the heart. Her writing style is deceptively simple in construction – yet there are profound and complex issues she tackles in between her lines. Her openness to addressing her past, her roots, her identity as a person of color, and her experiences as a woman are deeply admirable.”

– Diane Rene Christian, Founder of the AN-YA project and author of Anya and Her Diary
