She returned to Perth in 1993 and joined Nine News as a senior reporter, then later became weekend presenter.

In 2003, Dixie and Sonia Vinci became Australia's first duo team of female news presenters, initially on a temporary basis, but it was later made permanent. This partnership lasted for 5 years, before her partner Vinci was replaced by former Ten News presenter Greg Pearce in 2008. She is also involved in Nine's Appealathon and other charity events at the station.

Dixie attended Presbyterian Ladies' College in Perth, Western Australia.

In May 2011, Marshall resigned from the Nine Network saying she wanted to spend more time with her family.She took up a full time Public Service position with the State Government a week later.
