Marcie teaches as an adjunct professor at NYU Steinhardt and is on boards for the Country Music Association and Berklee College of Music. She’s also a partner at Anzie Blue, a luxury CBD oil company and coffee shop that she started with her husband.

When COVID-19 started to keep people from going to restaurants or wanting to visit Anzie Blue, Marcie and her team had to figure out how to pivot the business, adding takeout, curbside and local delivery for coffee, food and CBD Products. Marcie also moved to online marketing, using Instagram to engage with customers and educate them about Anzie Blue’s products. Since then, the shop has rapidly adjusted to new challenges, getting its liquor license and expanding its menu to meet their customers’ needs.
