About Marina

Some things I like … sharing a hearty laugh until it hurts, surprises, crisp morning air, fruits and veggies from the farmer’s market, cooking and having friends over, intellectual stimulation, learning, new experiences, travel, city walks, creative projects…
My hobbies include hiking (most recently on Kauai) and rock climbing (always looking for partners!) I love dancing – all styles – and dabbled in ballroom, hip hop and bollywood. Some of it even got caught on tape.

Professionally, I’ve worn both business and technical hats in IT, equity markets and healthcare. I now wear people hat – training and consulting on communication. My passion is helping people meet more of their personal and work objectives through better communication skills – be it a “yes” and clean room from kids at home or good audience response to a business presentation at work.
I also do Improv-based group behavior training for teamwork, innovation and dealing with rapid change. You can find more details on Ignite Communications website.

Feel free to get in touch – I like catching up with old friends and making new ones. I am also always open to interesting opportunities and collaborations. And, of course, if you are interested in group training or private coaching…  email me Email icon
