A native of Manila, Philippines, she fell in love with the sport at the age of seven. She grew up peppering with two of her sisters and briefly trained with the Philippine Youth National Team. Her playing career as an Outside Hitter was spent in her homeland, which exposed her to international competition at the youth and high school levels.
Outside of volleyball, Marge spent many years as a human resources professional in the beverage and software industries, followed by careers in sports management, special events and the thriving Atlanta tv/film industry. As a foodie and passionate home cook, she was inspired to obtain her culinary credentials and hopes to open a food truck one day.
