Morian was born in Tallahassee and grew up in New Smyrna Beach. She is the proud product of Volusia County public schools. During her childhood, she saw the damage to individuals and to society of inequality, and she became a lifelong advocate for those who have been denied, denigrated, or excluded. Her father was an electrician, and her mother was a teacher; both were union members and were able to provide quality insurance coverage, something she believes all families deserve. She worked her way through college and graduate school as a work-study student, as a teaching assistant, and at part-time jobs. After graduating, Morian then began teaching and working with community organizations.
