As Executive Director of Urban Verde, Marcia combines her passion for business with her commitment to the environment. Her early career included marketing and development for several non-profit organizations. Later, Marcia parlayed her husband’s craving for vegan ice cream into and award winning east coast brand.

Marcia is excited about the opportunity to assist communities in creating a cleaner environment for residents to live and work. Her volunteer work on the local zoning board and Master Plan committee serves as an excellent background for her role at Urban Verde.

Marcia resides in a 100% solar powered home in Long Branch, NJ with her husband, Tom, and their golden retrievers. She is passionate about local food and spends her spare time tending to her organic vegetable and flower garden.
