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.
A native of St. Louis, Marci attended Missouri State University, Springfield for her BFA and MA (abt). She served as the Education Director at the renowned Springfield Little Theatre. She headed west to work in film and television as an actress, then worked in television development. In 1999, Marci started volunteering for Inclusion Matters by Shane’s Inspiration and currently serves as the Sr. Vice President of Outreach & Events.
Since joining Inclusion Matters, Marci has helped raise over $10 million in event revenue to support the mission. She produces a gala, golf tournament, walk/run/roll, and bingo event annually. Marci also oversees the My PlayClub program in Los Angeles and hosts the virtual Fun4All program. Her passion is the children and families who benefit from the inclusive playgrounds and educational and community programs that Inclusion Matters offers. As Marci celebrates 22 years with the organization, she feels blessed to work with such a devoted staff, led by the wise and thoughtful Tiffany Harris. Marci’s husband, Jack, daughter, Georgia, and son, Luke, have been active volunteers since the beginning and give her endless support.
