Marina’s story takes a turn beyond the corporate world. Her involvement in corporate social responsibility projects exposed her to the inner workings of NGOs and the critical needs in health, education, and social development across rural communities.

The pandemic brought a moment of reflection for Marina, leading to an epiphany about the essence of comfort and functionality in our living spaces. This realization propelled her to dive into the world of professional organizing and home staging, further honing her skills with certifications from the International Association of Professions Career College (IAPCC) and Home Stagers South Africa.

2022 marked a new chapter with the rebranding of Live in Taste, a venture that showcases Marina’s vision of blending decluttering, home staging, and interior décor into a symphony of services. Teaming up with the esteemed interior decorator Zelda Jordaan, they’ve created a powerhouse duo set to redefine our living spaces.
