Marcia Young, President

MY&A brings over 20 years of experience in niche publications development, project management, writing for targeted audiences, and spreading the word to the people who matter.

My career began in a consulting firm where I worked with a major auto company to prepare materials for corporate training programs (circa 500 AD).  That experience led to opportunities in Japan, including a position with Johnson Wax and the educational publisher, Obunsha Company.

After years of speech writing, editing, ambassador interviews (for audio text books), test item development (for computer adaptive testing) and various other projects, I returned to the US and joined American Guidance Service, Inc. (a subsidiary of Pearson) as a project manager in software development. Working as as program manager with Evaluation Systems, (another subsidiary of Pearson) and director for HRD Press, I was able to learn the “ins and outs” of eNewsletters, eMarketing, targeted blog writing and social media management.

Now I have  been joined by a strong team of people, each of whom is just as passionate about their area of expertise as I am. Together, we serve several organizations and clients.

Recently the MY &A group has expanded into niche publication development. The magazine industry has experienced a shake-down in recent years, and niche publications have risen to the top of the market, building and selling profitable magazines (both digital and print). We jumped into the market and are now producing two publications. One is on newsstands across the US and Canada and the other is a membership journal for a non-profit.
