Headshot of Marina CoxGrowing up in a multicultural family and pursuing a Spanish and Communication major at Furman University, Marina has immersed herself in cross-cultural experiences. Fluent in English, Spanish, and Catalan, her diverse linguistic skills and dual citizenship with Barcelona, Spain, make her a valuable asset to our team.

During her time as an undergraduate, Marina played a pivotal role as the Spanish Research Lead for a community project focused on the thriving Colombian community in the Southeast. She conducted interviews, transcribed and translated video documentaries, shedding light on their history and involvement in the textile industry. Moreover, Marina has been actively engaged in community service organizations, serving as an ESOL Teaching Assistant and a Bilingual Community Assistant. Through these roles, she provided valuable mentorship and assistance to underserved Spanish communities.

Marina’s three years of experience in strategic marketing and communications have further honed her skills. Working with large and small firms, she served as a lead account manager for clients in the US, South America, and Spain. With her deep understanding of Spanish-speaking communities and their cultural nuances, Marina will enable AGU and Thriving Earth Exchange to reach and empower more Spanish-speaking frontline communities, both locally and globally.
