Few facts about me….
I was born in Connecticut but raised in Dallas, where I reside with my husband and two daughters, and our German Shepherd Johnny.
My zodiac sign is Libra, which certainly reflects me as I am always looking for ways to find balance in my life.
I began ballet at age 3 and danced all the way through the University of Texas where I studied in the BFA dance program. In 2006, I signed with the Campbell Talent Agency where I began modeling for fashion print, commercial print and television commercials. During this period I also attended the University of Texas at Dallas where I received a BA in Art and Performance. I then worked part time as Director of Acquisitions at Samuel Lynne Galleries. Since then I have been collecting contemporary art and spent five years designing and building a custom contemporary home around our collection.
In 2013, I began my wellness journey. I received my yoga certification at WeYogis under Cheryl Oliver and Julie Boyd. My thirst for knowledge on wellness and mindfulness is what prompted me to start a blog called Marhow in 2014.
I am involved in multiple charities and chaired DCAC’s annual gala and art auction called Art for Advocacy in 2017 which benefits the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC) and helps children who are victims of domestic abuse and violence. More recently in 2019, I chaired the Family Place’s Texas Trailblazer Awards Luncheon which also serves women and children of domestic abuse as the largest shelter in north Texas.
