Marcy L. Shugert is a political consultant, loves strong coffee in the morning, and instantly smiles with the mention of Pinot Noir. Some of her adventures include a hotline for domestic abuse victims, a marketing plan for ways to combat HIV/AIDS in international market all while overseas and a marathon to raise $ for leukemia and lymphoma. She has consulted in marketing a religious sect in the Yunnan district of China, worked at a USAID funded project called BASICS (a child and maternal healthcare organization) and was a Communications Director for a current Carlsbad City Council member. Shugert has been the Marketing Director of the Women’s March for what is going on three years, and the theme for this year’s march is #PowerInUnity, and in that includes equity and inspiration of Women Rising. You might find her tucked away in a bookstore, playing with her chocolate lab Phoenix, or sitting back with some good jazz, a glass of wine, and dreaming (and plotting) of what is next.
