Marcie brings over twenty years of administrative managerial experience and is constantly implementing recommendations to achieve quality operational objectives and client-service standards. She is fluent in both English and Spanish and is also a certified notary public.


Marcie has a passion for immigration justice in the United States that comes from her personal experience as a first-generation American and as a mission advocate for social justice. Marcie’s mother, a native of Nicaragua, immigrated to this country in the 1950s and received her U.S. Certificate of Citizenship in 1965. In the 1980s, Marcie and her husband co-sponsored and opened their home to several of her relatives, who also emigrated from Nicaragua and now enjoy the American Dream. She has served as an interpreter on medical mission trips to Mexico, Central and South America.

She worked as an interpreter and purchasing assistant for an internationally-renowned private label distributor for another three. In Germany, Maria became a certified dental assistant through the American Red Cross.  Most recently, she has completed her first year as a tax preparation agent.
