Marina grew up on a small farm outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico where she gained an appreciation of land and livestock.

She has a Bachelor of Arts in English Studies from the University of New Mexico. Marina spends her free time volunteering with a local animal rescue, buying endless amounts of toys for her pup, and pouring over Chicano literature.
