Mary Menacho

executive coaching and consultant

Listen. Inquire. Design. Act. Reflect. Repeat! Mary Menacho exercises these verbs with clients so they can move their “rocks out of the road.” An Executive Coach certified by the Center for School Transformation to work with school leaders and faculty, Mary leverages over 40 years in education. For the past 23 years she delighted in heading Trinity School in Menlo Park, CA. During that tenure she also served independent school boards as a trustee and as a board chair, guided by tenets of effective governance, especially when working with search committees and head transitions.

As Elementary Board of Standards Chair for the California Association of Independent Schools, Mary and the board analyzed and deliberated the best ways to support the beautiful variety of our independent schools, their challenges and their opportunities through the accreditation process. Mary and her husband Victor live in San Jose, CA, near their three adult children and five grandchildren.
