Inspire inclusion. Compassion and acceptance will follow.
What inspires me most about our mission are the people. From our incredible staff, dedicated board members, committed volunteers, generous sponsors and loyal donors, to the exceptional children and beautiful families we serve, you can truly see and feel the difference we all make in each other’s lives.
After graduating with BFA and MA- degrees from Missouri State University, Marci served as the Education Director at the renowned Springfield Little Theatre. In 1986, she headed west and worked in film and television as an actress and in development. Then in 1999, Marci started volunteering for Shane’s Inspiration. Her role has grown as our organization has developed over the years. In her current role as the Sr. Vice President of Outreach & Events, she oversees all the events and outreach. As Marci celebrates 20 years with Inclusion Matters by Shane’s Inspiration, she feels blessed to work with the most amazing, loving staff. Her husband, Jack, daughter, Georgia, and son, Luke, have been active volunteers since the beginning.
