She grew up in the Chambersburg section of Trenton living above the family restaurant. Marcia attended Villa Victoria Academy/Cathedral High School.

Working in the federal government first with the EEOC in New York City. Then with the Department of Defense she worked in Germany, Utah, Seattle and finally Fort Dix, NJ as Director of Human Relations.
All this worked well with her love to travel. Marcia would spend weeks at a time in Mexico or river cruises in Europe. She traveled to every county in Europe over the years and was a personal travel guide for many friends and family.
