Marcy Fitzgerald is a Certified Nurse Practitioner dedicated to improving the overall health and wellness of people of color. Long underserved and with health outcomes often less favorable than our non-POC counterparts, Marcy believes this population deserves passionate advocates committed to our health.

Her passion for minority and community health has also led her to launch Our Health In Focus, an organization committed to reducing disparities in health outcomes. Marcy graduated with honors with both her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Master of Science in Nursing degrees from the University of Cincinnati. Prior to this, Marcy also graduated with honors from Florida A&M University with a BS in Computer Information Systems and from the University of Michigan with an MBA. She held the positions of systems analyst and finance manager prior to embarking on a career change more in line with her passion for health.
As a former fitness instructor, Marcy remains a fitness enthusiast and is adamant about walking the talk when recommending lifestyle modifications as an integral part of most patients’ treatment plans. She is also an avid reader and still enjoys playing piano after taking lessons for many years. In 1999, Marcy won the title of Mrs. Ohio America and was a top ten finalist in the Mrs. America Pageant. She was also a member of the 2000 and 2003 NFL cheerleading squads for the Cincinnati Bengals.
