Marjorie Wrenn

The Founder and President/CEO of Child Proof Advice, Marjorie graduated from college with a degree in Psychology and Management.   Her professional experience crossed several industries including Sales, Management, and Human Resources.

Like many, she pursued various career directions until developing her own entrepreneurial dream became a driving passion.  A perpetual volunteer and always an advocate for children, Marjorie repeatedly found herself involved in community service activities all of which centered around helping children. She knew it was personally important for her to draw upon this desire to protect our most valuable asset, our children.

The inspiration for Child Proof Advice was a perfect match incorporating her skills in marketing, management and sales with a love for children.  A commitment was born to contribute back to society in a way not yet experienced; in a way offering a longer lasting benefit to others and a more meaningful reward for herself.
