Her favorite activities are water skiing, snow skiing, and in the gym-jump rope is a perennial go to.  A self-described gym rat, Marcia always finds herself chasing the endorphin rush of exercise and weight training.  "I became certified as an ACE CPT (certified personal trainer), ACE GEI ( group exercise instructor), and then a US Navy Fitness Trainer where I served for about 7 years. While there, I certified as a TRX Trainer and Pre-Natal Fitness Trainer as well which allowed me to better serve the large population of military service men and women, their families, retirees, and Dept. of Defense civilians.  I can honestly say I absolutely loved my job!"
