Mary Sheehan Warren

Mary Sheehan Warren is a professor at The Catholic University of America’s Busch School of Business and teaches Consumer Behavior and Fashion Marketing. Mary has twenty-two years of experience as a social entrepreneur. She founded a Maryland-based non-profit organization dedicated to professional presence training (now called Success In Style), personally training hundreds of women from dozens of organizations across three continents to continue its mission in their respective locations. Currently, she is leading the Fashion Intelligence Project, an organization dedicated to sustainable fashion consumption.

Upon the publication of her book, It’s So You! Fitting Fashion to Your Life, Mary began her own consulting business, ISYFashion, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, working especially with businesses, professional organizations, universities, and individuals on professional development, personal branding, and general fashion education. She continues her work with ISYFashion in the Washington DC area and lives in Springfield, Virginia with her husband, Robert, and their five children.

Mary has a passion for helping others to understand the true value of the human person through educating on the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church, promoting an informed self-awareness in regard to body image and fashion choices, and fostering a better understanding of how the consumption of fashion (and all other goods and services) should serve our greater Community of Persons rather than the reverse.
