Marsha Gathier: La Vie à Paris

Marsha Ganthier is a marketing executive with 10+ years of healthcare industry experience. Born and raised in a small town in New Jersey, her Haitian upbringing left her feeling drawn to the Francophile part of her culture. Marsha caught the travel bug early and even spent some time abroad while finishing up her International Marketing degree. Living in Europe always felt like a natural next step and she realized that destiny three years ago when she moved to Paris, France. Her passions include her 7 year-old poodle Max, cooking, eating diverse cuisines, and traveling the world.

Marsha’s Blaxit Blueprint

1. Embrace Your Heritage: Marsha’s Haitian upbringing served as the foundation for her interest in living in France. As a Francophile, Marsha’s drive to immerse herself in French culture was nurtured by her supportive family.

2. Design Your Destiny: Studying in Paris while pursuing her International Marketing degree, further ignited Marsha’s desire to live in the ‘City of Lights’. Even though she returned to the States to work in the healthcare industry for several years, Marsha never gave up on her goal. Her persistence paid off when she landed a role in Paris.

3. Resolute Resilience: Relocating to France came with its set of challenges including navigating the visa process, language, taxes, along with adjusting to business and cultural norms. Throughout it all, Marsha’s resilience and commitment to living out her dream have enabled her to succeed even during the most trying times.
