Volunteer Spotlight: Alexandra Marcy

Published by Feeding Matters on May 01, 2021

Feeding Matters Volunteer Spotlight is a monthly Q & A series that shares the stories of our growing network of change agents, the driving force behind our vision to create a world where children with pediatric feeding disorder will thrive. This month we bring you Alexandra Marcy.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do.
I am a full time stay at home mom to 3 amazing kiddos! I have a son who is 13 years old and 2 daughters, one is 9 and the other is 2. My husband and I own a few rental properties that I manage and we also own an auto repair shop that my husband runs. Our life is very busy but I love it!

What motivated you to become involved with Feeding Matters?
My youngest daughter Emerson was diagnosed when she was about 4 months old with PFD and some other congenital disorders. I was introduced to this organization through my feeding therapist. The volunteers have been wonderful and supportive. After my daughter was stable and has been able to maintain that, I decided to offer my support to other mothers who are struggling with this as well.

How have you volunteered with Feeding Matters?
I am currently a family coach.

What has been your favorite part of volunteering with Feeding Matters?
Giving hope to families when they feel there isn't any.

What sets Feeding Matters apart from other organizations?
The volunteers and coaches all have dealt with some sort of PFD and are sharing their experiences with PFD.
