Marcia grew up in Passiac, New Jersey. She started pursuing an acting career at a young age with an appearance in an episode of “The Patty Duke Show”. In 1963, she became part of the Off-Broadway production “Best Foot Forward”, succeeding Liza Minnelli in the role of Ethel Hofflinger at the age of 15. Four years later, she tried her hand at a musical career, signing with Uni Records, and releasing her debut single entitled “The Flower Children” which became a top 40 hit in many areas of the United States, including reaching the number two spot in San Francisco.

However, the song failed to find international attention. She then released the song “The Groovy World of Jack and Jill” which found little popularity. In 1968, she released “Star Gazer”, and after this song too found little success, she stopped her recording career. She then returned to acting in “M*A*S*H”, playing Nurse Maggie Cutler for six episodes.

Strassman’s net worth started increasing significantly when she was cast as Julie Kotter in the series “Welcome Back, Kotter” which started airing in 1975. The show would run for four years amid reported tension between her and Gabriel Kaplan who played the titular character. She continued doing acting work after the end of “Welcome Back, Kotter”, including making several guest appearances in primetime shows such as “Time Express”, “The Love Boat”, and “The Rockford Files”. In 1980, she became part of the television production of “Brave New World”, and afterwards found herself in the sitcom “Good Time Harry” within the same year, but the sitcom was short lived. She then made several guest appearances in “Magnum PI” playing the former nurse Dr. Karen Harmon, the character saved by the title character in Vietnam. In 1982, she played Maria Giannin in “Soup for One”, and in 1981, Strassman found herself co-starring in “Booker” which was a spin-off of “21 Jump Street”. She held the role for a year and then made a guest appearance in “Murder, She Wrote”. Another well-known role came in the films “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” and the sequel “Honey, I Blew-Up the Kids”. She also played in the series “Tremors” as well as the 3D film “Honey, I Shrunk the Audience!” Her net worth rose steadily.

For her personal life, it is known that Marcia married Robert Collector in 1984 and they had one child, before divorcing in 1989. In 2007, Marcia was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer which had already spread to her bones. She passed away in 2014, in Sherman Oaks, California.
