Who is Dr. Marsie Ross at her core?
This is a wonderful question that I think we should all pose to ourselves on the regular! For me what is most defining for me is that I am a person of integrity. A person who at her core wants to help people. It could be something small like tell a woman she has lipstick on her teeth or big like developing products that help women thrive and live life full of energy! At my core I am a servant and a cheerful giver. And that has guided me personally and professionally. As a clinical pharmacist I am a member of a highly trusted profession that serves its customers and community selflessly.
Why are you so passionate about helping others get healthy?
Women’s health is my jam! I call women the “mad hatters” because we wear so many darn hats! The professional hat. The wife or girlfriend hat. The mama hat. The cook hat. The housekeeper hat. The friend hat. I even have a “Mom where’s my jersey” hat! Being a nurturer is natural for women so I’m not saying not to wear our hats I simply help women put on their self care hat FIRST! I too am a mad hatter and I see myself in these women. I even have a “Mom where’s my jersey” hat! I remember a time when I was so focused on being perfect and trying to control all the moving parts in my life that I lost the one thing I cherish the most…me. As a professional women, mother, wife, daughter, sister and best friend I know how hard it is to find time for yourself. My health and happiness were on a downward spiral until I drew the line in the sand.

What's next for Marsie personally?
Personally my goal is to continue to love and nurture myself with patience and grace. As a perfectionist I have to constantly congratulate myself for stepping away to take care of myself without guilt or apology. As a wife, mother, sister and daughter I seek to find balance to nurture these core relationships. I have been listening to the Bible on podcast and my spirit is constantly helping me surrender to God’s timing and I am forever grateful for God’s grace and mercy with my shortcomings so I will continue to work on this aspect of my life as it is the center of all things for me.
