Marcia grew up in McArthurs Mills. When it was time for college she moved to Toronto to attend Regency Dental Hygiene Academy Inc. where she received her diploma in dental hygiene. After college, she moved for a few short months and worked part-time dental reception and part-time dental hygiene in Bancroft before moving to Campbellford where she worked full time as a dental hygienist for three years. During her full-time work in Campbellford, she completed continuing education to allow her to work independently at her own dental hygiene clinic. From there Marcia set her sights on an area closer to her hometown. Barry’s Bay caught her eye because of its small-town hospitality and the need for better access to dental hygiene services. After buying the old meat market, tearing it down, and building the new dental hygiene clinic in its place, Marcia has now made herself at home in Barry’s Bay with her husband Dale and two small children.
