About Marcia

I have an Honours Bachelor in English from the University of Guelph and a postgraduate Publishing Certificate from Ryerson University. I am currently completing a Master of Professional Education at Western University.

My favourite pastime is reading and I can often be found with my nose in a book. I have been a writer at heart from the very beginning, writing children’s books for younger grades in elementary school. I have recently authored a memoir, “Letters to My Hypothetical Children”, contributed to a #1 internationally bestselling book, “Silent Grief, Healing, & Hope”, and authored numerous articles for TWINS Magazine, New Dreamhomes Magazine, and Life in Multiples.

I have a passion for education and lifelong learning, devoting my career to publishing educational resources, developing curriculum, and teaching at the post-secondary level. I have been teaching since 2017 and have taught courses such as Introductory Communications, Professional Writing, College English, and Conspiracy Theories (Critical Thinking), at Fleming CollegeGeorge Brown College, and Humber College. I have 15 years’ experience in post-secondary education in a variety of teaching, editorial, sales, marketing, project management, acquisitions, and new program development positions, providing a unique, holistic perspective. Companies I have worked with include: American Technical PublishersMcGraw-Hill EducationNELSON Education, and Harlequin Enterprises.

I am recognized as digitally-savvy and forward-thinking, and have been invited regularly to pilot and launch new technology, as well as provide training and documentation cross-functionally. I drive change for innovation and efficiency. I am a collaborative and diplomatic leader and team member and I thrive on a challenge.

In my spare time, I volunteer for causes related to children’s and women’s rights and I donate blood on a regular basis. When not reading, writing, or teaching, I am a mom to twin girls. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, participating in any activity outside, and catching up on sleep whenever possible. I love coffee, Harry Potter, and puppy snuggles.
