Marcia is a retired customer relations professional with a life-long interest in equity issues. She was a keen observer of the Affordable Care Act debates in Congress, and when single-payer advocates were forcibly removed from the room, she knew there had to be a better way to high-quality, affordable, and accessible health care: through the states. She looked around and in 2012 joined HCFA-WA, where she has served on the Policy and Outreach Committees. She joined the Board of Directors in 2014 and served as President of the Board from 2017-2021. She now co-chairs the Communications Committee.
