Early life

Marilee Fiebig with her mother Paulie Fiebig

Marilee Fiebig was born on October 27, 1977, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to William Fiebig and Pauline Fiebig. She was raised in the Congo until the age of five. After that, her parents moved to the United States of America as they wanted him and her siblings to get the best education possible. Unfortunately, the education level in DRC was very poor.

Marilee is a Scorpio. Scorpions are passionate, ambitious, and clever but stubborn, aggressive, and obsessive.

As a child, even though her father was an American, but her mother had a lot of trouble as an immigrant. 

As a witness to the experience, she decided to become an immigration lawyer so that no one could experience the same. As a result, Marilee Fiebig pursued her law degree from Vanderbilt University Law School to pursue her dream career.

Even though she is married and has a daughter, Marilee still takes time out for her. She gets up early morning, gets dressed, and is ready for the office before her daughter wakes up. After she cooks breakfast, feeds the daughter Marilee then drops her at school. She is a role model for other women. Fiebig goes out regularly on a walk with her daughter and enjoys conversation with her.
