Hi, I'm Marina!

I believe in caring for the whole person and not just the disability that may define someone. Some see patients, I see a person: a mother, a brother, and grandparent. Life is not about how long you live but about the life you live inside that time. I give back to people because I believe it is not only medicine and time that heals, but empathy, compassion and patience will heal you from the inside out.



My top 3 skills as a caregiver are:


I became a caregiver because:

I grew up in a public service family. You were either in the medical field (RN or MD) or a Police Officer. I wanted to be so many things growing up as a child, as we all do. I dreamed of being a teacher, a mother, a chef, personal assistant and even a boss, yet if I only did one of those careers I didn't think I would be satisfied. So I searched for something that would encompass all of that, so I chose to be a nurse; a profession that goes above and beyond the call of duty. So now I am on my journey (last semester) to becoming the best RN I can be.



Outside of work, my hobbies and interests include:
I enjoy exercising and cooking! I have a green thumb but in this case, in the kitchen! I dont mind spending most of my free time studying to further my education.


My proudest moment as a caregiver has been:
Working in the nursing homes I see many types of families and people. I would say my proudest moment is not something I did but something I experienced. I noticed that every day this man would come into the nursing home and sit with the same client everyday. I asked around because I was curious as to who he was. Turned out it was the husband of one of the clients who had dementia. The client didn't move, talk, or even open her eyes most of the time but still, her husband came every, single, day and sat that with her in the peace in quiet. He would just read a magazine and give her a kiss on the forehead occasionally. Time after time when asked how she was doing, without skipping a beat he would say to the staff "she's looking better today!" And I learned something from being in that nursing home and watching this man come see his wife everyday, even knowing he'd just be sitting and watching and waiting; I learned love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. From that moment on I always remember after being on my feet all day, exhausted and tired, that compassion is what makes the world go around and in the medical field you cannot forget to share a little love.
