Marsha Foust brings a spirit of connection, passion, and leadership into everything she puts her hand to. Her life experiences both professionally and personally, have given her a unique relational perspective along with a drive for excellence. Her deep connection with others began during college, where she gained skills in storytelling as a Media Studies major at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Shortly after college, Marsha started her career at Labcorp, where she transitioned through several different roles. Areas where she made the most impact during that time include workforce optimization and LEAN process management.

Marsha then took a huge leap into the nonprofit field where she worked at a local church for the next six years as the Next Steps Director. Her role helped integrate families into the church and provided opportunities to get them connected into the culture and life of the church. This role confirmed and deepened Marsha’s passions in life: serving her community, leading teams, and helping others explore and connect to their personal gifts. After the pandemic, Marsha transitioned to a new role where she was able to take those skills and adopt them over to a new role with a local Chick-fil-A franchise where she helped the restaurant leadership develop their own leadership structure and ladder.

Marsha returned to Labcorp to work in divisional communications and after two years has now transitioned into a communications role with the corporate communications team where she promotes the company’s mission by creating communication strategies and oversees communication operations through the diagnostics segment. This past March, Marsha was chosen to co-lead Labcorp’s Burlington Chapter of the Women’s Empowerment Network employee resource group where she helps empower, encourage and connect women throughout the chapter and overall company.

Marsha also serves regularly at several local nonprofits including the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, and her local church, Trailhead. Marsha was chosen as a 2023 participant in the Alamance County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Program. Marsha has been married to her best friend, Brad, for 13 years, and they have two children, Cora (10) and Wesson (4). As a family, they enjoy hiking, traveling, and a good movie night!
