A native of Providence, Rhode Island, Marie received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Rhode Island. After moving to Denver, CO, she enlisted in the US Air Force. While enlisted as Medical Laboratory Technician, she completed her Master’s Degree in Management with Troy State University and was ultimately commissioned as a Transportation Officer. Her military career allowed her to live in various parts of the US (Arkansas, California, Florida, Ohio) and Germany, as well as a tour in the Middle East during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. After she and her husband retired from the military, they relocated to the Phoenix area in 2001 so that he could continue his aviation career.
