Past executive positions include Vice President, Communications for Common Sense Media, a non partisan, non profit organization that helps families navigate the 24/7 media world in which their kids now live, and Director of Corporate Public Relations at Lucasfilm Ltd., a fully integrated digital entertainment studio. She has more than 20 years of experience in the entertainment, media, technology and publishing industries. In 1991, Governor Ann Richards appointed her Director of the Texas Film Commission.

During those years, the state enjoyed more than $500 million in economic impact from the film, music and television business. Marlene was also instrumental in negotiating new filming agreements on state property and on state highways and in the legislative passage of important sales tax legislation for production companies. She currently serves on the boards of Artists for a New South Africa and the Kitchen Sisters and on the national leadership committee of the Family Violence Prevention Fund.
