THLady Marie is an exceptionally hard worker, and over the years has been a true asset. She joined the SCA is 1995 as a member of the (former) Shire of Yeoman's Wood, and long before that group merged to become a part of the Shire of Tir Briste she already was autocratting events and serving in offices. She was Demo Co-ordinator for the (former) Shire of Novus Matisco, and has been both Reeve and Seneschal for Tir Briste. She began her autocratting career as Drop-Dead Autocrat for Yeoman's Wood Winter Collegium in 1995, her first event, and has served the same function for Fool's War XII in 2001, Fool's War XIII in 2002, and Fool's War XX in 2009. She was co-autocrat for A Fun Event Part Deux in 1997 and for Champion's List in 1998, and for Kingdom Fighters Collegium in November of 2004, and she was the autocrat for Fool's War XIV in 2003. She supplied the drinks and snacks for Herald's Point at Gulf Wars XIX in March of 2010.
She has served as Chief Troll for numerous events, including Feed the Hordes 1995, Champion's List 1997 Dark Wars 1998, and Legends 2006, 2007 & 2008, and she served as Reservations Steward yet again for Fool's War XXI in April of 2010. THLady Marie served on the Tir Briste Financial Committee in 1999, is a member of the Tir Briste By-Laws Committee, has served as Tax Collector (Caecepol) for the Southern Consortium of Shires from 1997 to September of 2006, and served for two years as Deputy Kingdom Exchequer for the Kingdom of Meridies before stepping up briefly (from September-October of 2006) as Kingdom Exchequer. She regrettably had to step down from that office in order to deal with mundane family crises, but she currently serves as the Exchequer for the Shire of Tir Briste, and asked as co-feastcrat for Legends XVIII: The Crusades hosted by the Shire of Sol Haven over the weekend of November 6th-8th, A.S. XLIV (2009).
She also served as entourage during the second reign of TRMs Boru and Deirdre, and along with Lady Magy McTherlach has donated her time and efforts casting metal event tokens for various events, making matching tabards for all of the Tir Briste Feast Servers, and spearheading other Shire projects.
