Marina Martinez is the Graduate Program Coordinator for BSOM and loves helping graduate students succeed at UT. Growing up in East Texas, she was heavily involved in the arts, participating in the Tyler Civic Ballet, East Texas Youth Orchestra, and regularly performing at festivals and events with the Texas Swing Fiddlers and the ETYO Chamber Group.
Marina earned their BA in Anthropology from The University of Texas at Austin in 2016. During her time as a student, she was involved with the Liberal Arts Honors Music Ensemble (serving as co-director for the instrumentalists), volunteered with Hook ‘em Arts as the Special Events Chair, and worked at Texas Performing Arts with the Student Engagement division.
In their free time, Marina enjoys knitting, writing for a silly online publication, chilling with their cat Toad, and running a D&D campaign.
