Marion Scher has been one of South Africa's top freelance journalists for the last 21 years, writing for many leading publications such as Fair Lady, True Love, Cosmopolitan, Style, Men's Health and Sunday Times Lifestyle to name a few.  In 2005 she was awarded the prestigious Rosalynn Carter Award for Mental Health Journalism from the Carter Center in Atlanta, USA and is today a member of their South African Advisory Board.  Perhaps one of her biggest contributions to the media she feels, has been the journalism students she taught during her 14 years as a lecturer, many of whom today hold major positions in the media.

Her varied career has also seen her working as a producer and researcher for the SABC as well as working with radio stations. 

Today she not only acts as media consultant to many of South Africa's top companies but also runs training courses on media related subjects from writing skills to handling media interviews.
