A Quick Note from Marina
Let me introduce myself...My name is Marina Marvin, and I am the Breast Health Nurse Navigator at Sky Ridge Medical Center. I started in December 2016, and I am appreciating every moment that I spend with my patients and co-workers.
I attended nursing school in Ireland, where I was originally born and raised. I came to America in 1994 with my nursing license to follow my nursing dreams and ambitions. Today, my parents and brothers still reside in Ireland (County Wicklow), and I go home annually to visit. I moved to Denver in 2006 as a travel nurse for Bone Marrow Transplant patient care and met my husband. I got married in 2010 in my hometown in Ireland. We have an overzealous, red-headed seven-year-old boy, named Ronan. I have 23 years of nursing experience and 15 of those years have been dedicated to Oncology patient care. I am currently in school working on my Masters in Nursing and Nurse Practitioner certification.
What Being a Nurse Navigator Means to Me
As a Nurse Navigator, I am member of the multi-disciplinary care team at Sky Ridge, serving as an advocate and educator for those facing cancer from diagnosis through survivorship. I will help coordinate a plan of care including appointments, education, support services and represent you within the multi-disciplinary care environment.
I am also here to support each and every one of you who completed treatment for breast cancer, and patients who are still going through the process to get better. If you have any additional questions, please contact me at 720-225-2273.
