Marcia has been a part of the in-home child care industry for 23 years. She started her career after graduating from the English Nanny and Governess School in 1997. Marcia joined the INA in 2006 and passed the INA Nanny Credential Exam that same year. In 2011 Marcia was named the INA Nanny of the Year and was inducted into the INA Board.

As Marcia’s family grew, she adjusted her role within the industry.

She went on to write the book Nanny Basics and Beyond.

In her seven years on the INA Board of Directors, Marcia served in several capacities including the President of the association. During her time on the Board, she proved to be a highly organized and efficient advocate for the industry.
