Marina is the Executive Assistant to the President and Vice President of Programs and Operations at Alliance for Justice. In this role, she provides extensive administrative support to both and manages scheduling.
A native Texan, she comes to AFJ after completing her studies at the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A. in Government and another in Rhetoric and Writing with Liberal Arts Honors. While at UT, Marina began interning for U.S. Congressman Lloyd Doggett who represents the 35th District of Texas and worked at his office for her last two years of college, transitioning from intern to Congressional Aide. While working for the Congressman, Marina spent much of her time building relationships in the community and accompanying the Congressman to many of his events. Although she loves Texas, Marina is excited to finally have cold winters and see the cherry blossoms in bloom.
When she’s not working, Marina likes to spend her time watching too much reality TV, reading political memoirs, and taking naps with her Italian-Greyhound mix, Stella. She is passionate about women in politics, civil rights, and finding the perfect taco.
