LET'S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER

I started blogging in 2004. I grew up with the blogging industry. The only way to learn is to explore and experiment with the tools at hand. In 2004, there were not many tools. Blogging was a mere infant. 

My interests moved onto marketing strategy. I studied hard and earned my masters in business in 2006. Then, I worked in the business world to add to the years I already put into my career. 

I was miserable but put a smile on my face and went back to the grind every day because that is what I do.

Then I had babies and everything changed. What I love to do in life became crystal clear. My passions came full circle. I began to write online sharing ideas & resources about parenting and motherhood. At the same time, I fell madly in love with Montessori & recieved my training in 2012. 

Fast forward a few years and, Carrots Are Orange, the blog I started in 2010 makes me a full time income & I have built a community of literally 100s of 1000s of Montessorians.

THE OFFICIAL 3rd PERSON BIO


Marnie started writing as soon as she could pick up a pencil. Seriously, her mom has stacks of childhood journals beginning with one at 4 years old when her mom translated the musings of a preschooler. 

Thankfully, Marnie has come a long way since 1981. Fast forward to 2017: she is a mom, a writer, an email strategist, and a teacher both online and offline. 

She has a masters degree in business administration and is a Montessori-trained educator. Marnie hails from Maine where she spent summers buried in sand and winters buried in snow. Maine has her heart. Boulder is her home.
