Welcome. I’m Marlys.

Whether in a classroom in downtown Phoenix or a strawberry patch in northern Indiana, I get excited about sharing about the work and stories of people making our communities better.

My work has primarily focused on education or the world of food and agriculture, but I have also written for city marketing campaigns, covered a variety of features for a daily newspaper, and developed marketing content for a mix of other kinds of companies and organizations. Find examples of my work below.

Currently, I am the communications director for the Arizona K12 Center, a one-of-a-kind hub that develops and provides leading professional development solutions for classrooms today. You can find my work throughout the organization, including in our annual Teacher Leadership Report and on our podcast, 3Ps in a Pod.
