Marshall has stated that she "wanted to go through to the Miss England finals to break the stereotype that you have to be tall and skinny to be considered beautiful."[6] However, Marshall's Body Mass Index of 26.03, which is within what the body mass index classifies as overweight, has led to her being criticised for promoting obesity and ill-health.[7]

The national finals for the Miss England title were held on 18 July 2008. Marshall came in second place.[8] The same year, she was signed by the Models Plus agency.[9]

Marshall appeared on the cover of Plus Model magazine in March 2010.[10]She signed a three-year contract with Ford Models in early 2010.[10] Marshall has modeled for notable plus-size clothing clients including Macy's and Torrid.[3][11] She also walked in Lane Bryant's 2011 runway show in Las Vegas.[12]
