Marie is an information technology specialist with over 20 years of experience. She also works as a freelance political consultant on various Maryland campaigns.

She attended New York University, where she earned a degree in liberal arts. She is currently pursuing a second degree in communications.

Since her college days, Marie has had a strong interest in politics as well as Jewish causes. In college, she was part of the NYU College Republicans, Hillel, the Delta Phi Epsilon sorority, a little sister to the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity and president of the NYU Inter-Sorority and Sisterhood Council.

Marie is a lifetime member of Hadassah, and serves as the director for community relations for the #JEXIT movement. She is the second vice president for the Maryland Federation of Republican Women and a member of the Baltimore City Republican Central Committee. In 2018, she was a candidate for the Frederick County Board of Education. She is also the recipient of the Diana Waterman Maryland Republican Woman of the Year from the Maryland State Republican Party.

In May 2019, Marie was a featured in a clip on Breitbart as one of the speakers at the initial #JEXIT rally in Washington, DC. An orthodox convert to Judaism, her clip highlighted how she has endured more anti-Semitism than racism because most people do not expect her to be Jewish upon first encounters. She has also appeared on Sirius XM’s POTUS, the One America News “Weekly Briefing” program and CBS News Radio’s “Weekend Roundup.” Her writings have appeared in places such as The Federalist, The Hill, Politichicks as well as the Daily Caller.
