Maren Perry, MA, PCC

Our Best Marriage Founder and Lead Coach


Maren Perry; Founder, Our Best MarriageInspired by her experience with her own wedding and relationship to create Our Best Marriage, Maren is committed to having engaged couples grow closer during the wedding-planning process and acquire tools to build an ever-stronger relationship.

In her work as a personal coach, Maren has worked with many clients to create the relationships they desire, from looking for “the One” to engagement and marriage.

She holds a BA from Brown University in Cognitive Science and is one of only 6% of coaches worldwide to hold a Professional Certified Coach credential from the International Coach Federation, with thousands of coaching hours under her belt. In addition to Our Best Marriage, she owns an executive coaching company, Arden Coaching, contracting herself and others to coach high level leaders in the country’s largest and most prestigious companies. As a coach, she has a relatable and practical style; her clients consistently comment on her insightfulness and the usefulness of her coaching in their lives.

Prior to coaching, Maren worked as an Event Manager for everything from Bar Mitzvahs to Global Leadership Conferences. Of course, being forty-two years old herself, she has also been enlisted by many a friend over the years whose wedding required all-hands-on-deck. Yes, much of that work has made its way into the stories in these chapters. And no, she no longer has any of those dresses.

Wedding BlissAn actress for two decades, Maren has a dynamic presence that fills a room. She has an M.F.A. in Theatre from the University of Washington and uses this skill to great advantage when leading seminars and doing speaking presentations. She is extremely comfortable leading seminars and keynotes; she loves interacting with an audience, both articulate and playful in her presentations.

Maren believes life is a celebration and that her life purpose is to make her life and that of others as rich, full and joyous as possible.

She currently lives in New Jersey with her amazing husband Patrick and their two hysterical (and huge) cats.
