Marcia grew up in Worcester, the youngest of three children. As a senior in high school, she chose her career because of her best friend’s sister. So, she started the Radiologic technology program at Quinsigamond Community College at age 17. Graduating from the Radiology program in 1975, she then furthered her career in the brand-new field of ultrasound. Her official title is Registered Medical Diagnostic Sonographer (RDMS).
One doctor she worked with joked that she had more initials after her name than he did!
Marcia spent 45 years working in the field of ultrasound, mostly in obstetrics and gynecology. She performed ultrasounds on countless patients through the years including herself and all her children when they were having our 7 grandchildren.
Marcia has always enjoyed the outdoors and on occasion would think what would it be like to own a farm? Her father always had a beautiful backyard garden when I was growing up. Fast forward, she sold to their daughter in 2020 and moved into a 55-year-old condo complex also in Rutland. She retired in January of 2022 and has stayed busy helping with all the grandchildren.
Marcia was introduced to MHOF by a neighbor who is a shareholder and decided she wanted to eat a healthier and more organic diet. She checked out Julie’s website a saw the information about working shareholders and thought “this is my chance in life to experience working on a real farm. So, here I am!”
She joked with her husband after her first morning at MHOF that she could have performed a 12-patient morning easier than keeping up with everybody at the farm! A normal ultrasound morning is around 8 patients.
Marcia is thoroughly enjoying all that she is learning on the farm and all the beautiful people she has met. She is grateful for this wonderful life experience.
