Marie Smith


Marie joined Parsons in 2015. Born in the UK, Marie has a BA (Hons.) in Chemistry and Ph.D in Synthetic Organic Chemistry from the University of Oxford. After a successful career in academia and the pharmaceutical industry, Marie took a “break” to raise her 3 children. In 2009, she took the opportunity to make a career change and follow her passion of assisting clients with their financial health. Marie assists in preparing My Wealth Plan™ financial plans as well as helping clients with Social Security, Medicare, tax, stock, and college questions.

Marie loves living on the coast with her family and mini Schnauzer (the weather reminds her of England) but also enjoys the mountains of the Sierras, where she is determined to master snowboarding in the winter as well as enjoy the many summer activities such as hiking, biking, tubing, and wake boarding. She is also involved with the Seacrest school community.
