Marina was born and raised in Brazil. She moved to New York where she earned her bachelor’s degree in finance. After working in banking for a number of years and having two kids of her own she decided to pursue a new career path that is dear to her heart, supporting new mothers.
The calling to support new mothers started when Marina learned that a new local mom was having a hard time during her postpartum period. Marina volunteered to come and care for her newborn. That was when the calling got louder and she pursued doula certification. Marina is certified in birth, postpartum and breastfeeding education.
