Mary Whitt • Vibrant People of Elkhart County


Mary Whitt is today’s Vibrant person!

Mary Whitt stays fit. It is a choice; it is a commitment.

Mary is active and healthy and that is what she wants for the rest of us. She is President of Cobalt Benefits, a woman-owned agency based in Bristol Indiana. She does not say this, but you can quickly understand that she is all in for helping others get more out of life.

Mary and her team help clients not just with health insurance matters, but with their health. Mary leads by example by following a healthy regimen of diet and exercise. “I definitely practice what I preach,” she says. “I like staying active.”

For years, Mary was a spin instructor and a good one. She no longer runs classes, but spinning remains her main stress release. She calls it her passion. “You have to schedule time to make it happen,” she tells us. “It is the only way to continue to be healthy and have a better quality of life.”

To help spread her message about health and wellness, Mary started Healthy Habits. That is a division of Cobalt Benefits that helps companies manage costs through programming, testing and coaching.

Mary likes to cook. “You don’t have to eat rabbit food to stay healthy,” she says. Daughter Zoe can attest to that. Zoe is interested in becoming a nutritionist as part of her studies at IUPUI.

Kinsey, Mary’s other daughter also attends the Indianapolis school. She is majoring in psychology. The Whitt’s think family time together is precious.

Friends say Mary will go out of her way to help others. She is considerate and generous. She understands choice and commitment. She also believes being vibrant is something everyone can be and she will help you get there.
