While at GVSU, Marnie has taught in both the Allied Health Sciences and Career Exploration programs. By combining nearly eight years of experience in human resources and over 12 years of experience in higher education, Marnie strives to help students define their own personal success.“One of my favorite quotes is by Winston Churchill: ‘Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.’ There are a number of obstacles and challenges college will present and building a sense of tenacity and perseverance is so very important.  These are lessons you can use in your personal and professional life!
