In 2016, she established and built an operations consulting firm called Marie Management where she scaled real invest investing firms with charitable partnerships. Marie Management was designed to build corporate responsibility programs, community initiatives, trusts, nonprofits and non-government organizations for entrepreneurs after scaling their existing for-profit companies into hybrid models both nationally and internationally.
As a result of managing and building more than 400 companies with a total portfolio of $85M in total BIPOC business revenue and $10M into charitable activities for vulnerable populations, she learned that the gap between people in business vs. those actually doing business was massive.
