She has worked with the LWF Ratepayers Association, Windsor Junction Community Centre, LWF Baseball, Sackville, Bedford, and Provincial Skating Organizations, Xmas Express and on local political campaigns.
Beyond her volunteer roles Marni has held senior roles in organizations in the education, environment, continuing care and animal welfare sectors. As an entrepreneur and consultant she has experience in health care, arts and culture, and social causes including refugees, Black Nova Scotia initiatives and food security.
Marni attended local schools including Ash Lee Jefferson and Vanier. She earned her BA (English), BSc (Computing Science) and Masters in Electronic Commerce, all from Dalhousie University. She is one of just over 20 Nova Scotians to have earned their Certification as a Fund Raising Executive.
Marni and her husband Shane Turner live in Windsor Junction with their four daughters. Marni was raised with three younger sisters in the same community she lives in now, where she learned from her parents and neighbours the importance and value of volunteerism, community and belonging.

For the past decade, Marni has worked with local community groups to support youth and seniors. She led a network of non-profit organizations that included the largest summer employer of youth in the riding, and secured funding for seniors projects to support people aging in place with dignity. Marni is excited to get to work with community groups who have solutions for our health care system, supporting people navigating our mental health and senior care experience, as well as those working on active transportation networks, and creating recreation opportunities for youth.
Marni is ready to work for an inclusive era and an encompassing recovery post pandemic. An era where everyone can share in the growth and opportunities for our province. A recovery that is thoughtful in taking care of our environment by meeting and exceeding the climate goals for our province by making changes right here in our community. Marni wants to go beyond returning to what we were and look ahead to what we can be.
