Marcy is born and raised in Wayne County, and returned after completing a bachelor’s degree. She has worked with Wayne County youth through several different organizations, including JA, Girl Scouts, cheerleading, dance, and volunteering in local schools. Marcy has three daughters of her own, and knows  first-hand how important it is to give girls a space, a voice, and tools they need to set goals, take risks and succeed. As someone who supports inclusiveness, genuinely welcomes and celebrates diverse voices and perspectives and enjoys working in a learning-centered environment, Marcy is excited in the potential of Girls Inc. and what the organization can provide to Wayne County.
