Marina is a central Florida native who has had a love for the water since she was six months old. She was enrolled in swim lessons before she even learned to crawl because she was raised around water. Growing up, every activity involved the water; from competitive swimming to boating activities and everything in between. Because of her upbringing, she is passionate about raising water safety awareness for children in Florida.
After earning her Hospitality Management Degree at the University of Central Florida, she discovered she wanted to make a difference in the community by pursuing a career in the survival swimming industry. In her recent work experiences, she has worked in the Hospitality, Wedding, and Events Coordinating industries. She has always had a passion for working with children after being employed at a child care center.
Marina is compassionate, reliable, and very detail oriented, which will serve her well as a swim instructor. She looks very forward to sharing her experience and enthusiasm with her swimsprout families.
