Marina joined the Strategy Center as our Sustainable Economy Program Associate in June 2018 after graduating from the University of New Hampshire (UNH) with a dual degree in Economics and Sustainability. She currently serves as executive director of our partner organization Biobased Maine.
At UNH, Marina had the opportunity to spend a semester abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, where she saw first-hand how an economy can prosper and a country’s citizens can thrive in a sustainable way. From her experience in Copenhagen as well as from working as a Sustainable Economies Intern at Manomet—a Massachusetts-based non-profit organization that works to apply science and engage people to integrate sustainability in all industries—Marina found a real passion in working for a world where sustainable development works to promote economic growth.
When she is not in the office, Marina can often be found reading in her hammock, hiking in mountains around New England, or practicing yoga.
