Markell works at the Pingree Center, a school focused on educating students with autism spectrum disorders. She is in charge of the school's GROW program (Getting Ready for Our World), which provides community-based and other training for adolescent students, which is focused on teaching functional skills in the home and community such as grocery shopping and meal preparation. The Pingree Center and the University of Utah have had a decades long collaborative relationship involving teaching and research activities.
