Marie was first introduced to cats at a very young age, and they have continued to fascinate her ever since. She became the owner of her first pedigreed cat, a Birman, in 1985 when her prefix Nicsha was granted. Marie’s first imported cat was a lilac point Birman male from the UK. In 2003 her other prefix Miakoschka was granted following her decision to import Siberian cats and create the gene pool for the success of this breed. She realised she could not have so many Birman colours if she was to continue with her Siberians so today, she breeds Birmans in Seal and Blue Points only.
Marie became a Companion Cat judge in 2003 and a Group 1 (Longhair) judge in 2004 (QFA). She has judged in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, and New Zealand.
She is currently the Vice president and Secretary of QFA Inc. President of the Birman Cat Fanciers Club of Qld and has been in this role since 1997 and is a Life Member of the Club. She is also President of the Semi–longhair Cat Club of Qld
