Ms. Marsh has served in the State’s Attorney’s Office since graduating from college in 1998.

Upon graduating with honors from law school, Ms. Marsh was hired as an Assistant State’s Attorney. She continued to advance in the office over the next twelve years to her current position.

Mrs. Marsh invests countless hours on behalf of the youth of Calvert County through Youth Groups, Sunday School and Summer Camps. She is a master at balancing these commitments with those of Adjunct Professor for the University of Maryland and raising three boys with her husband.
