Marci Hopkins, Coffee with Marci
Marci has always been driven by her creative side, she was drawn to the Art Institute of Houston with a vision of running a soundboard at concerts, but she quickly found her true passion in television. She interned at Paramount 20 Century FOX and knew she had found her fit. Marci’s next professional opportunity was operations coordinator at FOX in Houston, after two years she was promoted to Manager of Programming for Prime Sports Rocky Mountain in Denver. Shortly thereafter, she moved to LA and worked as Director of On-Air Promotions for FX and met her husband. They started a family and she began a break from television.
Once the children were older she knew she had to find her way back to her passion. While she always worked in television, it was behind the scenes, and she decided to make a move in front of the camera! Marci trained with John Pallotta in NYC and has taken acting classes at Actors Connection, Actors Technique, along with private coaching, and improvisation training at The PIT. She has done commercial work, was featured on several Discovery ID Network programs, worked on Indie Films, web series and TV Pilots. She has recently launched her own talk show on Facebook titled, "Coffee with Marci", which empowers others with information and inspiration.
