"Marsh was perhaps the most transformational supervisor I ever had, and in my current work, I often try to channel her patience and respect for others."
- Meridith Owensby, Co-Founder, Lydia's House / Cincinnati, OH
"Carol D. Marsh actively and routinely sought constructive criticism from her peers and subordinates: this established an unshakable foundation for trust."
- Christiana Huff, Former Miriam's House colleague
Carol D. Marsh was Founding Executive Director of Miriam's House -- a residence for Washington, DC's homeless women living with AIDS. Marsh lived and worked at Miriam's House until December 31, 2009, when chronic migraine disease forced her to resign.
Under her leadership, Miriam's House was home for more than 150 women and 30 children, and won the 2003 Washington Post Excellence in Nonprofit Management Award.
Marsh founded the FORUM FOR GROWTH IN SERVICE in 2017. She has spoken about her life and work at Miriam's House to various DC-area groups, including Georgetown University's Medical Residents (Family Medicine); Washington Scholars Program; ALIVE!; Washington AIDS Partnership; and Discipleship Year.
In August 2014, Marsh earned a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction from Goucher College. Her thesis was Nowhere Else I Want to Be: A Memoir, published in January 2017. Learn more HERE.
