Marina followed her obsession with stories to the Publishing program at Portland State, and soon after graduating joined NWESI with an internship that soon morphed into a regular position. Although her background is in editing and marketing for books, Marina found that those skills transferred seamlessly to her current position.
She enjoys learning about new marketing and communication strategy in the A/E/C industry via participation in local networking and education events. To keep herself busy, she volunteers for the Communications committee of the SMPS Portland chapter, and with various literary journals. When not combing through pages for errant commas, Marina can be found writing, baking, or planning her next concert trips.
