Marion is originally from Dublin, Ireland and moved to San Diego with her husband and daughter in the summer of 2016, and welcomed a baby boy in 2018. Previously a focused career driven working Mama, she is now adapting to the role of Stay at Home Mom. She finds living in San Diego makes that role a lot more enjoyable and loves exploring all that San Diego offers with her 4yr old and 6mth old. When she isn’t trying out new playgrounds or watching Moana for the 50th time, she loves baking, crafting and DIY (although she’s not claiming to be amazingly good at any of these!). She also likes trying out new restaurants with her family, and enjoying a glass (or maybe two!) of wine! She loves to travel, is open to new experiences and really enjoys meeting new people!
