Marcia Verkaik Office Manager

Marcia Verkaik,
Office Manager and Assistant


Marcia Verkaik is Dr. Kelemen’s Office Manager and Assistant. She has served Dr. Kelemen for over 18 years at both his Artesia office and now at his Cerritos office.


Being the oldest in a family of seven children (five sisters and one brother), Marcia is very service and family oriented. She has been married to her husband Pete for over 38 years and has a handsome son, beautiful daughter, and five wonderful grandchildren. Her Dutch upbringing in the Netherlend Reformed Congregational Church, keeps her grounded as she shares her talents as the church organist.


In her spare time, outside of work, family, and church, Marcia somehow finds time to give back to her community. Over the years she has served the business community by being involved with the Cerritos Chamber of Commerce as an Ambassador and a Member of the Board of Directors. In addition, she has also served as the Ambassador and Vice President of the Artesia Chamber of Commerce.


Marcia has been involved in community organizations and philanthropic endeavors such as participating with the American Heart Walk (as a committee member for two years), the Artesia Historical Society, and with Soroptimist International of Artesia-Cerritos (where she is a current member and past President).


Marcia’s contributions and impact to the cities of Artesia and Cerritos has not gone without notice as she has received several awards. In 1994 she received the Artesia Citizen of the Year Award. Other awards include the Artesia Woman of the Year Award (presented by Assemblywoman Sally Havice), Artesia Woman of the Year Award (presented by Senator Betty Karnette), Cerritos Chamber of Commerce Volunteer of the Year Award, and the Cerritos Chamber of Commerce Presidents Award.
