Marina worked as a fourth-grade classroom teacher in Thailand for two years before meeting her husband, Paul, and starting their family together.
Marina started homeschooling her three daughters in 2013, and hasn’t looked back.
Prior to developing Summit Writing Academy's dynamic writing curriculum, she tutored Classical Conversations' Essentials class.
Marina’s love of learning, teaching and watching others learn is evident in her dynamic teaching style.
In 2017, Marina co-founded Summit Writing Academy with Reuben Thiessen to offer a fully integrated learning platform which would support their vision of creating confident writers and thinkers.
