Hi Hello! I am Marcie, new member to Carrollton Rainbow and extremely excited to be here!
A little about me….I am local to Douglas County where I have raised an amazing daughter on my own, my late husband passed away in 2005 and it’s basically been the kiddo and myself. She has been my rock through it all and I am one proud mother! I am a huge animal lover, worked with several dog rescues and fostered over 100 dogs. I have three at home, two of which were rescued.
I came across a post that my friend Jenny Hamrick had posted about Carrollton Rainbow looking for potential board members or volunteers and I just knew that I wanted to be a part of that. I have always been a huge Ally for the LGBTQIA+ community supporting where I can with attending Pride festivities, volunteering where I can. My heart is truly with the youth and young adults. I am looking forward to seeing all the great things that Carrollton Rainbow can offer to the West Georgia area, I believe it’s going to be GREAT!
