Marion farms with her husband Ray at Moosomin where they have an organic grain farm, though they live in Regina. Their land has been managed organically since 1991 but was certified in 1995. During her years involved in this industry, Marion has served on the local chapter Board in a variety of capacities, on the OCIA International Board and various committees of OCIA and on the Research and Education Board of OCIA International. Over the past three years, Marion has been the President and Chair of the former OCIA Canada, now known as TCO Cert, a newly incorporated and accredited, not for profit, organic certification body headquartered in Humboldt.

Marion worked as a Teacher Assistant with the Regina Public School Board specializing in work with students with various disabilities for close to 20 years. Ray and Marion have four grown children and three grandchildren. They like to travel and often combine travel with some form of involvement with organic agriculture. In 2009 Marion retired from the school system and worked as the Media Coordinator for the Food Miles Committee of the Saskatchewan Organic Directorate where she helped to create the Dining with the Stars 13 part television series. Most recently, she works half time for Farmer Direct Cooperative as the Agricultural Justice Internal Auditor.  She is a member of the Organic Round Table, the Grains Round Table and the rep for her municipality for the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS). Marion was the Event Coordinator for Organic Connections from 2011- 2015.
