Marina joined the United Way of Denton County team in June, 2021. Taking special interest in human rights, Marina earned her Bachelor of Arts in Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Her studies were concentrated in policy, justice, and politics which provided the background for Marina’s transition into the human services field. Originally from coastal Connecticut, Marina spent her post-graduation years as a certified domestic and sexual violence counselor. She is excited to begin her journey at United Way of Denton County as a Rapid Re-Housing Navigator. As a lifetime equestrian, Marina spends her free time on horseback or enjoying a hike with her dog Hiro.
