Marsha Walker is a coach, author, and a passionate advocate for responsible parenting.
From humble beginnings, Marsha quickly moved through the ranks in the corporate world and eventually made her exit at age 29 to spend more time raising her daughter and giving back.
Marsha turned to her first love, sport, to provide a source of income and did this successfully. She saw a gap in the market and she filled it. The Just Be Active Academy focuses on children ages 3 to 7 years old and introduces them to various sports and outdoor activities. The main attraction started off being surprise visits from the likes of Dwayne Bravo, Keshorn Walcott and Cleopatra Borrel, but now parents are clamouring for a spot due to the quality of the service and Marsha’s gift for coaching children.
Being the sole bread winner at the time and a home-schooling mom at that, Marsha’s creativity in business was a necessity in making life work.
Apart from the academy, Marsha has authored a children’s book Entitled “If I Can, You Can Too,” which tells the true story of some of our local heroes in a child friendly manner, the book has been inspiring children from Laventille to Barrackpore since 2015, and her passion for parenting landed her a contract in 2017 with the Guardian Media Group where she produced a full line of parenting media under her brand CARE, until 2019 when she took a break from everything to give birth to her second daughter.
She is young, vibrant and a breath of fresh air. Her energy leaves adults and children alike inspired and hopeful.
Mentorship played an important role in Marsha’s life so it is now a dream come true to be able to spend her days helping others achieve the same success she has.
