She is a Certified Childbirth Educator (Lamaze), a Certified Babywearing Consultant (Center for Babywearing Studies), and a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician (Safe Kids Worldwide).

Marcie has a passion for helping people find a baby carrier that’s right for them! In 2013 when she became a new mom for the first time she was overwhelmed to find out her newborn son was only happy in her arms, and not in the countless items she registered for to put her baby down in. After a couple moths of struggling she was introduced to her local babywearing group in her hometown of Ventura, CA. She was amazed to find so many options to wear her baby in and how instantly he was happy and content, and Marcie was able to accomplish more while still keeping her baby close. Her passion quickly grew from there, and after her daughter was born in 2015 she knew she wanted to do more with the knowledge she had gained and start helping other caregivers feel empowered like she did. In 2016 Marcie became a trained babywearing consultant through the Center for Babywearing Studies, and is currently working towards a Child Passenger Safety Technician certification.
Marcie currently lives in Portland, OR with her husband two children who are 5 and 3 (as of fall 2018). Marcie also spends much of her time volunteering with the local Portland Area Babywearing group which provides free services to the Portland community.
