Marie has been a member of GRRA since 2003. 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. You will usually see Marie selling GRRA merchandise at Adoption Day each month.
As an Adoption Consultant, Marie enjoyed 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 with her husband and two dogs. The are active members of the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in downtown Atlanta.
