Quoting multiple sources, The Washington Post says her father and sister Liz, a firm critic of President Obama, are expected to join her in the new venture.
However, there has been no official word on family involvement. Family spokeswoman Lucy Tutwiler said Mary was starting "an independent strategic consulting firm" but Liz, helping her father write his book, was not involved.
Others say otherwise.
The Post said Mary has told colleagues that "she wants to do something with her father," a firm "like Kissinger Associates."
The only confirmation at this point is that Mary Cheney, said to be expecting her second child in November with partner Heather Poe, is leaving Navigators Global at the end of the month, the Post reported.
