Marina is a certified health and wellness coach and has been interested in the health and well-being of others for as long as she can remember. She became more deeply involved in health and nutrition since turning to a 100% plant-based lifestyle seven years ago. She decided to study nutrition and enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program at IIN. The program was the perfect approach for her, giving her the in-depth knowledge she needed in this field and equipping her with the necessary tools and skills to be there for others.

Marina’s approach to health is holistic. Every aspect of one’s life must be considered in order to thrive. A person’s health, nutrition, movement, environment, relationships, emotional health, and personal development are all connected and influence one another, which is why they need to be balanced. She deals with a person as an individual and considers what will work for them specifically. She guides and supports them while offering accountability. Her desire is for them to live life to the fullest. We can all thrive when we understand and appreciate the interconnection between our lives and our bodies. It often only takes a small change to have a huge impact on our well-being. Learn more about Marina by checking out her website and Instagram.
