Marina was born and raised in San Diego. She stayed locally through college, where she attended the University of San Diego. With a major in Sociology and minor in English Literature, she always knew she wanted to work with people, but was not sure in what facet or setting. Prior to EP Wealth, Marina worked for HD Supply, an industrial supplier, as a personalized service representative for all state and federal accounts. Altogether, she had been in customer service for almost 10 years before joining EP Wealth. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family and Labrador Retriever, Bear.
