Hey, I'm Marie!
San Antonio, Heredia Province, Costa Rica · Member since December 2013

A native Torontonian, Marie studied and worked abroad before finding her true love and tropical paradise in Costa Rica. Together with Costa Rican husband Luis they have 2 daughters, 15 and 7 years old. Their passions for environmental and social issues has led to several projects including rainforest conservation, reforestation with native species, the design and construction of the first commercial solar wood dryers in Costa Rica, and support for traditional midwives in Central America.

Marie co-founded an NGO called Mamasol, through which she has worked for many years campaigning for the rights of mothers and babies for safe and empowering childbirth ((website hidden)). As a home birth midwife, childbirth educator and prenatal yoga instructor, Marie has helped bring into the world hundreds of babies for Costa Rican families as well as families from many parts of the world.

Marie loves to host travelers in her guest house and strives to satisfy the needs of each one.
