Marina grew up in Denver, Colorado, but wound up in Massachusetts to attend Boston University once she graduated high school. As she obtained her degree in political science with a minor in Holocaust, genocide, and human rights studies, she fell in love with the fast pace of life on the East Coast. She moved to Washington, D.C., soon after college and comes to Avalon with an extensive background in multi-media digital political campaigns.
When she’s not busy successfully implementing digital fundraising strategies (or playing Sudoku), Marina’s out trying new restaurants with friends, vintage shopping, or visiting farmers markets. She loves coming home at the end of each day to her impulsively clean apartment containing her most prized possessions—among them being “Little Abe,” a miniature bust of President Lincoln with a head that might be slightly too small.
