Victoria Marin graduated from New York University in 1995 with a degree in Occupational Therapy. As an Occupational Therapist, she gained recognition for the innovative use of the Nintendo Wii with the elderly in a rehab setting. Marin held a position in the Metropolitan Occupational Therapy Education Council and was a member of the Dominican College Professional Advisory Council, where she presented the benefits of a multi-sensory approach for the treatment of elderly patients with dementia. As a stay-at-home mom, she is an active member of her church where she is a catechist and Eucharistic minister.
Raised in Orangeburg, New York by Italian immigrants, the importance of family, friendship and respect was emphasized. Now living in New Jersey with her five children- Christopher, Jonathan, Lauren, Sienna and Ryan, Marin finds her inspiration to write in them. Through her children, she has observed life in action and has learned many valuable life lessons which she is honored to share with readers.
As a new author in a highly competitive market, Victoria now shares with potential authors fast and inexpensive marketing and self-promotion strategies which helped her secure numerous radio interviews, profile pieces in local newspapers, expert contributor status on various websites and book events which were attended by well known radio stations.
