Using her own life experiences as a catalyst, Bestselling Author and Life Recovery Coach Mal Duane is passionately committed to empowering women in releasing the shackles of shame, pain and self-condemnation to live a life of passion and purpose.
Mal’s transformational journey, including recovering from alcoholism as a young woman, has provided her with extensive hands-on, in the trenches experience for taking hold of life and bringing forward the potential that lies buried beneath the scars and hurts.

She has been invited to share her inspirational story and empowering five step process on over 100 radio shows, has appeared in numerous telesummits as well as being featured on Fox 25 News.
Mal believes that the greatest gift in achieving success is the ability to give back to causes that touch her heart and have the power to transform the lives of women and children. In 2007, Mal financed the Katherine Holly School in Kondjila, West Africa. Today the school educates a hundred children annually that would never have had the opportunity.
One of her most rewarding accomplishments was the recent founding of the nonprofit, Holly’s Gift in memory and tribute to her beloved niece. As a 501(C)3, the mission of Holly’s Gift will be to provide Framingham, Massachusetts area women with a marketable skill set, educational Virtual Assistant training and certification so that they can support themselves upon release from a sober living facility.
Mal lives with her husband, Dr. Michael Pearlman (also known as Dr. Delicious) and their English Jack Russell Terrier, Hannah, in Framingham, Massachusetts, where she works, writes, speaks, and supports women in living their truth and reclaiming their lives.
