Marie has been a long time member of GRRA and has volunteered at the monthly Adoption Days for several years. She and her husband have adopted several wonderful Goldens from GRRA. She chaired the committee to produce the 2018 & 2019 GRRA calendars as well as the GRRA note cards. Along with a talented team of volunteers, the 2018 calendar included over 125 photographs of beautiful Goldens. The note cards have 36 different pictures of Golden Retrievers and are still available for sale on the GRRA web site! You will usually see Marie selling GRRA merchandise at Adoption Days each month.
As an Adoption Consultant, Marie enjoys working with applicants. It is fun to get to know these families on a one-on-one basis and see how the GRRA dogs finds its "furever" home. Whether it be a single individual, a couple or a family with lots of kids, there is always a special dog waiting to come into their home.
Marie also enjoys working special events to promote GRRA. She is particularly interested in getting more people involved as a volunteer with GRRA so in 2019 she joined the Board of Directors and became the Director of Volunteer Recruitment.
As a native Atlantan, Marie currently lives in the City of Brookhaven on the north side of Atlanta with her husband and two dogs.
