Marina moved to San Francisco from Los Angeles to study at SFSU, graduating with a BS in Recreation, Parks, and Recreation Administration. Since then, she has developed her love for teaching outdoors by working for the National Park Service as a Environmental Educator at the park's Native Plant Nurseries, then as a garden science instructor for Education Outside at two local SF elementary schools.

When she is not working at the ESC you can find her gardening, hula hooping, and fire dancing.
