Marcie has worked in family law since January 1992—the first eight years as a legal assistant, then the next 23 as a family law paralegal.
Growing up in Spokane, Marcie attended North Central High School and always had her sights set on attending the University of Washington, where she majored in History and was, for two years, a member of Women’s Crew team. While her original goal had been to attend law school, she found her true strength lies in the behind-the-scenes work supporting others on the ‘front lines.’
Marcie enjoys spending time with her husband, Gary, and his adult two sons, Elijah and Noah – all of whom know they sadly rate second best to her beloved four-legged children. She loves to bake and is famous with family and friends for her homemade salted caramels.
