An ordained minister of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), she has taught and ministered in areas of spiritual formation and missional outreach for nearly two decades. She and her husband, Jason, and their daughter Gina, live in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

“Marsha led our multi-generational retreat group through spiritual practices that brought the Gospel to life. Our members are still talking about it, and want to know when she can come back. Her caring, nurturing style was inspirational.”
