A Few Words About Marie
Marie has a checkered past having grown up in southern California and then striking out on her own to come to the University of Washington. There she had a blind date and ended up marrying her current (and only) husband. She completed her studies getting a degree in Anthropology. Though never working in that field, she has work with people in retail sales, offices, auctions, the local school district and for Aldersgate. Because a lot of her work experience seemed centered around finance, she went back to school and got a bookkeeping certificate and an accounting certificate at Bellevue College.
One of her greatest joys has been the ability to help out her children’s growing families by watching the grandchildren. Though the job began with one, over the year three more little boys were added to the lot and controlled chaos is the order of the day. Taking them to the preschool at Aldersgate (and helping in the classroom), trips to Costco, parks and playing has filled her time. She also enjoys sewing, reading, birds, hiking and people.
