Marcellena Nieves was born and raised in Lorain, Ohio. She earned a BA in applied management and a masters in organizational leadership and entrepreneurship from Grand Canyon University. She also has a Lean Six Sigma and is working on her certification as a Salesforce Certified Administrator.

Marcellena is a military spouse of a retired Marine. During her husband’s career, she spent countless hours volunteering for his squadrons and battalions as a Volunteer Family Readiness Assistant and Advisor. She has a passion for volunteering and recently took on a more active role as a Volunteer Coordinator for Operation Homefront to continue giving back to military families.

Marcellena learned about Dog Tag from her husband who immediately encouraged her to apply. She is excited for the hands-on business experience available in the program, as that was a vital part missing from her online master’s degree program. She cannot wait to network and learn all she can to be successful and support the continued success of the fellowship program.

Marcellena’s favorite baked good is fresh from the oven sugar cookies!
