After receiving her PhD in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Marieb joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College in 1969.

Many of Marieb's students were studying nursing, and she developed a strong interest in the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and nursing.
