Senior Director, Breakthrough Youth Network

With Breakthrough since 2001


Prior to Breakthrough, Marcie was an English teacher in Ohio. She has earned a bachelor’s degree in English Education, a master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Organizational Change, and a doctorate in Education. In her free time, she continues to teach classes and supervise students at local universities. At Breakthrough, she enjoys celebrating and supporting students as they go off to college, and seeing them return as an adult to volunteer or enroll their own children in Breakthrough’s programs. Her most memorable experiences at Breakthrough have been taking children to summer camp, as she remembers these times as exhausting but so rewarding. Marcie and her husband, Bill, live in East Garfield Park, where they also raised their three children.
