While at the US Air Force Academy, she was drawn to the beauty contests because of her desire to do community service and public speaking. "As a freshman at the academy, you might have a hard time finding your identity in a very new and challenging environment," Marsh told the Air Force Institute of Technology. The focus on public speaking and community service is one of the things I love about pageants, and my cousin competed in them for a long time. She was crowned Miss Colorado just days before graduating from USAFA and receiving her commission as a second lieutenant. She is going to participate in research on early detection of Pancreatic Cancer at the Harvard Medical School and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Her mother died from pancreatic cancer in the summer of 2018, prompting her advocacy for patient care and research through the Whitney Marsh Foundation.
