Dr. Marsha Franklin

Marsha Franklin is a certified life coach, who has been actively involved in a number of advocacy agencies for children with disabilities. She has made presentations at Allied Health and parent conferences, addressing community and family needs, and served on the Child Developmental Committee, an advisory body to the Government of the State of Pennsylvania, as well as serving as a board member for an international children’s organization and a charter international school in California.

Perhaps more important, she is the mother of seven children, several with some serious physical problems that kept her family in the straits of poverty for years. She made it through those years with aplomb, thanks to personal and family resilience, and recounts the trials and tribulations with wit in No Pennies to Pinch.
