Elected in 2013, as Cape Coral, FL’s first woman mayor, she served the state’s 10th largest city from 2013 to 2017. In 2015, she was awarded the "Elected Women of Excellence Award" from the National Foundation of Women Legislators. With a Masters degree in Business, she founded Indigo Pros, Inc consulting firm in 2013, after serving over 25 years in senior management roles at companies like State Farm Insurance Companies and National Interstate Corporation.
Her life changed on June 24, 2017. While at a US Conference of Mayors conference in Miami, FL, her ex-husband violently abused her exposing her secret publicly for the nation to see. Instead of running from it, Marni vowed to use her experience to help others. In January 2018, her ex-husband pleaded guilty to Third Degree felony charges of "battery by strangulation". The judicial process and roadblocks ignited a passion within her to see to it changes are made to protect victims.
Being a survivor of domestic violence and sexual assault, as both a child and an adult, Marni understands first hand the challenges victims face as they maneuver through the judicial system. Using her voice and her contacts as a former elected official, she is committed to advocating for legislative changes and educating others on the abuse cycle and effects of victim shaming.
