Marsha was born in Worcester, the daughter of Kendall and Helen (Trainor) Clifford. Marsha grew up and spent the majority of her life living in Northborough. In her youth, she worked for her father’s business as a truck driver, the foundation of her wanderlust.

A graduate of Northborough High School, she went on to graduate from secretarial school. After graduation, Marsha decided to take another path and started her career as a stewardess for Northwestern Airlines.
