Bio

Marcus earned his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California and a Master’s degree from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology before becoming a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. He began working in Seattle in long-term children’s residential for children with severe emotional disturbance. Following this, he spent four years in San Bernardino providing home-based community mental health services to children and adolescents with severe emotional disturbance. He came to Riverside County and joined RUHS-BH Housing. Since 2015 the program more than tripled in size, offering homeless outreach and housing services county-wide, 7 days a week with 24 hour on-call services. He has been instrumental in grant writing efforts, increasing funding for housing options throughout the County, and acts as lead to the County’s Coordinated Entry System “HomeConnect.” Most importantly he cherishes his wife, their three-year-old daughter and their 1 year old son. In his free time, he loves bicycle racing and eating Mexican food.
