Board Corner: Interview with Marina Choi

In June, Sister Schools welcomed a new class of volunteers to the Board of Directors!

Marina Choi loves being outside, especially while backpacking, camping, or climbing.  Since the pandemic started, she's been spending lots of time at home, something her dog, Jessie, certainly doesn't mind!

In addition to joining the Board at Sister Schools, Marina is also learning to play the cello and spending more time baking.

Read on to learn a bit more about Marina Choi!


What is your professional background?

My professional background is in healthcare. I have my master's degree in public health and currently work at the Department of Health caring for babies with cystic fibrosis across Washington.

Why did you connect with Sister Schools’ mission?

Sister School's is so dedicated to serving the community and engages school-aged kids in such a practical way. I love working with kids, and feel like the best version of myself when I'm with kids.

What are you most excited about joining the Board of Directors?

I'm really excited about how dedicated Sister Schools is to connecting kids here in Washington to kids across the world.

Where is your favorite place you’ve ever traveled?

My favorite place I've traveled is Cabo, Mexico. I was able to cross off a bucket list item when I swam with a whale shark there.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life, it would be tacos.
