Marie lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and spends her summers in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Each region provides a wealth of photographic opportunities. Yet she credits her knowledge of the craft from her interaction with other photographers in photo clubs and in PSA. She has won stars in EID and CPID, had her work published in Popular Photography magazine, and is the EID Study Group Coordinator for PSA. She belongs to the Boynton Beach Camera Club and the Pocono Photo Club where she is its PSA representative.
