Marsha Perry joined the ARTZ Philadelphia Board in 2021.
Marsha Perry is currently Team Lead for the Central PA region for UPMC Health Plan-Medicare. Working in both the non-profit and private sectors for more than 30 years, Marsha has experience in strategic implementation, program development, and diversity and inclusion initiatives. She believes the work she has done over the years changes people’s lives by advancing healthcare and educational opportunities within the community. Changing lives comes into play by establishing strategic partnerships that assist in community-based opportunities that address social determinates of health including diabetes prevention, caregiving, and healthy lifestyle education.
Marsha began her professional career in the marketing and community relations spaces, having held positions in undergraduate admissions, non-profit education management, and in the radio and television broadcast industry. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Temple University and MBA from Eastern University.
Marsha’s work with ARTZ Philadelphia emanates from first-hand knowledge of dementia from her grandmother who lived to be over 100, and because of the early exposure to art and culture by her mother.
