Marcia Lovell worked at Maine DHHS, Office of Child Care and Head Start, where she was a program specialist with more than 20 years of experience. She cared deeply about young children and their families and worked diligently to support healthy, responsive systems. Marcia embraced the philosophy of inclusive, quality early education for all children, including those with disabilities, those most at risk for being excluded from child care, and those unable to participate in community settings. She also loved ballet and the arts and believed that involvement with the arts was essential to becoming a whole person. She helped to establish Maine Roads to Quality in 1999.
