Marjorie is the author of "Who the hell do you think you are? " an award-winning speaker with Toastmaster's International. In 2015 she founded Giving Voices Project, a non-profit organization that tells the stories of survivors using the arts. A few years later she started Creative Safe Space Circles and New Beginnings Retreats to teach women how to incorporate art into their own self-healing journey.
Marjorie's personal journey with using art to heal began in 2010 when after 7 years of marriage and being a stay at home mother, she found herself spending the night in jail, homeless and fighting for her child and her life. You can read/listen to to more of her story here.
Marjorie believes her voice should be used for those that are voiceless, so she created A Seat at the Table as a way for women to share stories around social issues that affect them through art. She continues to use her voice as an advocate and public speaker on how the change we are seeking to solve these social issues begins and end with each of us. She uses this philosophy as a member of the Criminal Justice Committee of Organize Florida and Color of Change Racial Justice Organization.
Marjorie is a proud graduate of the University of Central Florida with a degree in Sociology, and Women & Gender Studies.
The organization strengthens and empower survivors of abuse using artistic healing techniques while engaging and educating society regarding the effects of abuse.
