Desirous of pursuing her dream and of helping people with medical & health needs as a physician, "Reyna" registered at Virgen Milagrosa University Foundation in Pangasinan for her professional medical education, receiving her Doctor of Medicine degree in 2013. She went for her medical internship at Tarlac General Hospital for a year, before writing and passing the Physicians Licensure examinations in February, 2015.

Throughout her studies, Marjorie has been ably supported by her doting parents and close relatives, with her father Joel working in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait for many years as a contract worker on mid-frame computer operations, before finally coming home for good in 2013. Her mother, Teresita "Tessie" Iglesia , a Commerce degree holder ,diligently managed the Acuna family household and also, looked after Marjorie's younger sister, Princess .

Many of her relatives, schoolmates and friends unarguably considered the personal , academic and professional achievements of Dr. Marjorie Iglesia Acuna as a hallmark of one with "brain and beauty". Before becoming a doktora, she dabbled in hosting and performing in fashion shows and community & social events and as a Registered Nurse in career transition, Marjorie participated and won several beauty pageants regionally and nationally, beginning with the title of Bb. Gerona in 2006, Mutya ng Lalawigan ng Tarlac 2nd runner-up in 2009, Miss Virgen Milagrosa University Foundation in 2010 and gamely representing Tarlac to the Mutya ng Pilipinas and Miss Philippines Earth beauty competitions in 2013 and 2014 , respectively.

Standing tall and proud, she now counts herself as a member of her Dad Joel's Acuna clan of the Philippines, Canada and the USA, who practice and serve in the medical and nursing professions which include 6 physicians : a grandfather, 2 uncles, an aunt & 2 second cousins, and four nurses: a grandmother, 2 aunts, and one first cousin. Contemplating , she plans and hopes to specialize and practice in internal medicine in the nearest future. ( T. San Juan)
